History of XAUGBP

The history of XAUGBP dates back to the 17th century when the British pound was first established as a major global currency. The use of gold as a medium of exchange also dates back to ancient times, making it one of the oldest currencies in the world. The gold standard was used in many countries until the mid-20th century, including the United Kingdom.
