Saudi riyal (SAR) to British pound (GBP) exchange rate chart and trend analysis based on real data sourced directly from UK currency suppliers
Our British pound to Saudi riyal chart plots the actual Saudi riyal 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 Saudi riyal against the pound and monitor fluctuations in the exchange rate over time.
This annual exchange rate summary provides a detailed breakdown of the performance of the Saudi riyal against the British pound over the past several years so you can put today's Saudi riyal buyback rates into context:
Exchange rates can be displayed in different ways depending on the context. There's the Saudi riyal to pound exchange rate, and the Saudi riyal buyback rate. The two are in fact the same; they are just displayed differently.
The Saudi riyal to pound exchange rate corresponds to the value of one Saudi riyal in British pounds. For example, a Saudi riyal to pound rate of 0.2174 means one Saudi riyal is worth 0.2174 pounds.
In contrast, the Saudi riyal buyback rate corresponds to the amount of Saudi riyals you'd have to exchange to get one pound. For example, a Saudi riyal buyback rate of 4.6 means you'd have to exchange 4.6 Saudi riyals to get one pound.
UK currency suppliers prefer to show the Saudi riyal buyback rate instead of the Saudi riyal to pound exchange rate, so we follow the same format in our Saudi riyal comparisons. However, on this page, we use the Saudi riyal to pound exchange rate since this is what the data is intended to show.
The two rates are interchangeable: to convert the Saudi riyal buyback rate into the actual Saudi riyal to pound rate, just divide 1 by the Saudi riyal buyback rate, e.g.: 1 / 4.6 = 0.2174.
