The Sohnlandic pound sterling (sign: £; code: SPS) also simply called the Sohnlandic pound, is the national currency of the Republic of The Sohnland.
The Sohnlandic banknotes came first. On 10 November 2020, the famous £0 banknotes was conceptualised and designed just as a joke about how micronational currencies are worthless. The banknote design unexpectedly became a popular sensation for its good quality design rather than the joke and meaning behind its creation. The £0 note depicting a well dressed pigeon was later printed to commemorate it for all of the hype it had recieved. Sohnlandic banknotes and coins have not purposefully been made for circulation but rather as a commemorative piece to prove legitimacy of The Sohnland as a de facto sovereign state, not de jure sovereignty.
Despite The Sohnland itself not being recognised as a sovereign state there have been professionally designed banknotes and coins representing the nation.
Although they haven't been made for circulation, the coins and banknotes have been practically exchanged for foreign currencies such as the British Pound Sterling. The value is entirely up to interpretation.
