Don't understand the question.

A dollar is not equal to a pound. It's nearer 2 dollars equal a pound.

A pound is made up of 100 pence. There are 1 penny, 2 pence, 5 pence, 10 pence, 20 pence, 50 pence, 1 pound and 2 pound coins.

We don't have names for coins like you do, like quarters, nickels, dimes etc. We just call them a 1p, 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p and pound. We used to have names, like fathing, shilling, two shillings, crown, half crown etc but we ditched that bollocks finally in 1971 when we went to decimal.

There are plenty of slag terms of a pound : Quid, sheets, notes, sovs etc

But, a monkey is

Right then, said Fred.

LOL always makes me chuckle looking at the slang we use over here for money.

BTW pound originated in Rome WAY back, it was also I believe the 1st use of a stamp on currency to certify the metal was of (then) a Roman pound weight of copper/bronze called a Libra.

Only the Loonies and Toonies !! We liked Canada very much. Started in Quebec ( my god, it was a bit nippy ! ), then to Montreal ( a bit of a dump ), then Ottawa ( exceptionally smart ) and finally Toronto ( went up teh CN tower, in the fog and could not see anything ).

Right then, said Fred.
