How much is a pound, quid, guinea, bob, shilling etc. And also how would it compare to dollars today?

Basically I'm interested to figure out just how much that 2,000 guinea steed would expense today, just how much Dad conned from Alfie, what their assorted salaries are, and how lot they invest on "olives", etc.

You are watching: How much was 1 pound worth in 1920

A guinea is 21 shillings and also a pound is 20, yet for the sake of simplicity, we'll go through 2000 pounds.

The historical inflation calculator (http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/bills/article-1633409/Historic-inflation-calculator-value-money-changed-1900.html) converts 2k pounds in 1920 to being worth about 90k pounds now.

Today's exchange price is 1.57 dollars come one pound. So, 2k pounds in the 1920s is approximately 141k in us dollars today.

This means Arthur Shelby Sr made off through a small over 35k US as soon as he absconded v 500 pounds.

Edit: once John states Shelby minimal is making 150 pounds every day, that is £6,752.43 now ($10,601.32 US).

But if everyone can uncover a price guide, ns love to check out what he had actually wrapped increase in cars.
