The pound was the currency of South Carolina until 1793. Initially, the British pound circulated, supplemented from 1703 by local paper money. Although these notes were denominated in pounds, shillings and pence, they were worth less than sterling, with 1 South Carolina shilling = 8 pence sterling. The first issues were known as "Proclamation Money". They were replaced by the "Lawful Money" issue in 1748, with 1 Lawful shilling = 4⅔ Proclamation shillings.
