SHP

ISO 4217 code for the Saint Helena pound. It has existed side by side with the British pound since the early 19th century. It is pegged to the British pound at a one-to-one ratio. Interestingly, Saint Helena does not have a central bank, and pounds are issued through a private, commercial bank.
