South Korean won (KRW) to British pound (GBP) exchange rate chart and trend analysis based on real data sourced directly from UK currency suppliers
Our British pound to South Korean won chart plots the actual South Korean won 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 South Korean won against the pound and monitor fluctuations in the exchange rate over time.
This page shows the South Korean won to pound exchange rate, not the South Korean won buyback rate advertised in our South Korean won 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 South Korean won against the British pound over the past several years so you can put today's South Korean won buyback rates into context:
Exchange rates can be displayed in different ways depending on the context. There's the South Korean won to pound exchange rate, and the South Korean won buyback rate. The two are in fact the same; they are just displayed differently.
The South Korean won to pound exchange rate corresponds to the value of one South Korean won in British pounds. For example, a South Korean won to pound rate of 0.0006 means one South Korean won is worth 0.0006 pounds.
In contrast, the South Korean won buyback rate corresponds to the amount of South Korean won you'd have to exchange to get one pound. For example, a South Korean won buyback rate of 1600 means you'd have to exchange 1600 South Korean won to get one pound.
UK currency suppliers prefer to show the South Korean won buyback rate instead of the South Korean won to pound exchange rate, so we follow the same format in our South Korean won comparisons. However, on this page, we use the South Korean won to pound exchange rate since this is what the data is intended to show.
The two rates are interchangeable: to convert the South Korean won buyback rate into the actual South Korean won to pound rate, just divide 1 by the South Korean won buyback rate, e.g.: 1 / 1600 = 0.0006.
