Description

The Saint Helena Pound (also called simply "pound") is the currency of the Atlantic islands of Saint Helena and Ascension, which are constituents of the British overseas territory of Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha. It is fixed at parity with the pound sterling.

Prior to 1984, both Saint Helena and Ascension Island had issued non circulating commemorative coins but officially used British circulation coins. In 1976, circulating currency was introduced as banknotes (coins since 1984) which carries a legend naming both entities: "Saint Helena and Ascension Island". However, both of them also issue non-circulating coinage in their own separate names - such as "Ascension Island" only (since 1978); these are issued for international coin collectors and not for use on the island.
