Pembrokeshire is part of the United Kindom and uses the same currency (GBP) as the rest of England and Wales. The currency units are the British Pound (£) and the Penny (p) Some Welsh speaking outlets use (c) or (¢) instead of p. It is also common practice to omit the p from all prices over £1. You may also encounter stores which ignore both the £ and the p symbols e.g. 14.99 used instead of £14.99p
One penny (1p) is worth £0.01
One pound (£1) is worth 100p
Many stores now prefer bank card purchases (especially contactless) to cash.
 
UK Bank Notes
We have recently replaced all our old paper banknotes with new polymer bank notes. Paper £5 and paper £10 notes are no longer legal tender. If caught with an old note, you MAY be able to get it changed at a bank or post-office. Paper £20 and paper £50 notes will cease to be legal tender on Sunday 22 September 2022.
 
Purchasing low value goods with high value (especially £50) notes can cause problems for small traders and may even appear suspicious.

Scotland and Northern Ireland are allowed to issue their own Bank Notes but whilst they are "Legal", they are not "Legal Tender" in Wales. To explain that comment, visitors, residents and shops can choose to accept these bank notes (because they are legal) but they are often refused because they are not a Welsh/English currency. (It is extremely rare to encounter either Scottish or Northern Irish notes in Pembrokeshire!)

All our coins feature our Queen's head on one side. The design on the rear of the coins varies by coin value and year of manufacture. It is even possible to see different designs on two coins with identical value and minted in the same year.
 
We are not in the Euro Zone. Most outlets will not accept foreign currencies and those that do may offer a very poor exchange rate.
Most banks, larger post offices and some travel agents provide a currency exchange service but you may be asked for proof of identity.
Exchanges may advertise a 0% commission but it is still worth shopping around because the exchange rates vary.
