Regency Money Questions Answered

On the Historical Hussies blog, Regency romance author Linda Banche recently posted about the worth of Regency money. You cannot imagine how thrilled I was when she shared a link to a currency converter that actually converts money from hundreds of years ago into today's equivalent!

I tried the converter myself this morning. I was intrigued to note that £1 in 1270 (the earliest year the converter will do) had the spending power of £532.72. Wow.

For some concise info on Regency currency, I suggest checking out Linda's earlier post, Regency Money.
