The United States Dollar (USD):

The United States Dollar is a far-reaching currency. It is used more than any other currency in international transactions, and it is officially used in some other sovereign countries, including Ecuador, El Salvador, and East Timur. Several overseas British Territories also use the U.S. dollar as their sole form of currency, but in an unofficial capacity. Still more nations link their national currency to the U.S. dollar via a fixed exchange rate. The U.S. dollar uses a decimal system for smaller denominations. One U.S. dollar is equal to 100 cents, also called pennies. Amounts under one dollar are only issued as coins and consist of the following: nickel (5 cents), dime (10 cents), quarter (25 cents), and half-dollar (50 cents).

The Pound Sterling (GBP):

Pound Sterling is more commonly known as the Great Britain pound, or simply only one or the other of the two terms: the pound or sterling. It is the official currency of the United Kingdom, its overseas Territories, and Crown Dependencies. Other areas in which the pound sterling is in uses includes Gibraltar, the Falkland Islands, Saint Helena, and Ascension. Some of these countries have established a fixed exchange rate between pound sterling and their own currency. Pound sterling is currently the fourth-most traded currency in the world. It is behind only the U.S. dollar, the euro, and the Japanese Yen. Pound sterling is the third-most used currency in global reserves. In 1971, the pound sterling was converted to a decimal currency. 1 pound sterling can be divided into 100 pence.
