Jamaican dollar (JMD) to British pound (GBP) exchange rate chart and trend analysis based on real data sourced directly from UK currency suppliers
Our British pound to Jamaican dollar chart plots the actual Jamaican dollar buyback rates offered by our panel of UK currency providers at the end of each day, so you can see the historical performance of the Jamaican dollar against the pound and monitor fluctuations in the exchange rate over time.
This page shows the Jamaican dollar to pound exchange rate, not the Jamaican dollar buyback rate advertised in our Jamaican dollar buyback comparisons. Both rates are the same, but the buyback rate is displayed in a different format due to the way UK currency suppliers advertise their buyback rates. Learn more
This annual exchange rate summary provides a detailed breakdown of the performance of the Jamaican dollar against the British pound over the past several years so you can put today's Jamaican dollar buyback rates into context:
Exchange rates can be displayed in different ways depending on the context. There's the Jamaican dollar to pound exchange rate, and the Jamaican dollar buyback rate. The two are in fact the same; they are just displayed differently.
The Jamaican dollar to pound exchange rate corresponds to the value of one Jamaican dollar in British pounds. For example, a Jamaican dollar to pound rate of 0.0056 means one Jamaican dollar is worth 0.0056 pounds.
In contrast, the Jamaican dollar buyback rate corresponds to the amount of Jamaican dollars you'd have to exchange to get one pound. For example, a Jamaican dollar buyback rate of 180 means you'd have to exchange 180 Jamaican dollars to get one pound.
UK currency suppliers prefer to show the Jamaican dollar buyback rate instead of the Jamaican dollar to pound exchange rate, so we follow the same format in our Jamaican dollar comparisons. However, on this page, we use the Jamaican dollar to pound exchange rate since this is what the data is intended to show.
The two rates are interchangeable: to convert the Jamaican dollar buyback rate into the actual Jamaican dollar to pound rate, just divide 1 by the Jamaican dollar buyback rate, e.g.: 1 / 180 = 0.0056.
