Bristol Pound - the UK's largest local currency


Bristol Pound is changing. The UK’s largest local currency is transitioning to a new platform and will operate under the new name, Bristol Pay.

Bristol Pound as it is now will cease operating in the coming months. Therefore it is not currently possible to join the scheme as a new member.

Existing members will be invited to create a Bristol Pay account once the new platform is launched. 

If you are not currently a member but would like to be one of the first to join on the new platform, sign up to hear the latest news by clicking the newsletter link below. 

Paper Bristol Pounds will remain in circulation until their expiry date of September 30th 2021. There will then follow a 3 month period in which the expired paper pounds can be paid into a Bristol Pay account and exchanged for sterling.

We look forward to welcoming you to Bristol Pay. Together we can create a greener, fairer and stronger local economy.
