Russian ruble (RUB) to British pound (GBP) exchange rate chart and trend analysis based on real data sourced directly from UK currency suppliers
Our British pound to Russian ruble chart plots the actual Russian ruble 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 Russian ruble against the pound and monitor fluctuations in the exchange rate over time.
This page shows the Russian ruble to pound exchange rate, not the Russian ruble buyback rate advertised in our Russian ruble 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 Russian ruble against the British pound over the past several years so you can put today's Russian ruble buyback rates into context:
Exchange rates can be displayed in different ways depending on the context. There's the Russian ruble to pound exchange rate, and the Russian ruble buyback rate. The two are in fact the same; they are just displayed differently.
The Russian ruble to pound exchange rate corresponds to the value of one Russian ruble in British pounds. For example, a Russian ruble to pound rate of 0.0125 means one Russian ruble is worth 0.0125 pounds.
In contrast, the Russian ruble buyback rate corresponds to the amount of Russian rubles you'd have to exchange to get one pound. For example, a Russian ruble buyback rate of 80 means you'd have to exchange 80 Russian rubles to get one pound.
UK currency suppliers prefer to show the Russian ruble buyback rate instead of the Russian ruble to pound exchange rate, so we follow the same format in our Russian ruble comparisons. However, on this page, we use the Russian ruble to pound exchange rate since this is what the data is intended to show.
The two rates are interchangeable: to convert the Russian ruble buyback rate into the actual Russian ruble to pound rate, just divide 1 by the Russian ruble buyback rate, e.g.: 1 / 80 = 0.0125.
