Description

South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands (SGSSI) is a British Overseas Territory in the southern Atlantic Ocean. It is a remote and inhospitable collection of islands, consisting of South Georgia and a chain of smaller islands known as the South Sandwich Islands. No permanent native population lives in the South Sandwich Islands, and a very small non-permanent population resides on South Georgia.

The pound sterling is the official currency of the islands, and the same notes and coins are used as in the United Kingdom. Non-Circulating Legal Tender (NCLT) coins are issued on behalf of the territory for collectors only.
