June 23rd 2016
Pound hits 1.5018 against the U.S. dollar after polls close on Britain's June 23 EU referendum amid speculation that private surveys commissioned by hedge funds were pointing to a "Remain" win. It hasn't touched those levels since.
June 24th 2016
Sterling hits a multi-decade low of 1.3228 in early trading on the day after the June 23 referendum as overnight results show a decisive - although not overwhelming - win for the "Leave" camp. The currency sank further on the resignation of Prime Minister David Cameron that same day.
September 6th 2016
Sept. 6 marked the pound's post-Brexit vote high of 1.3440 as investors continued to be impressed by the economy's resilience and second-guessed a move by the Bank of England to cut its key lending rate to a 300-year low 0.25% in mid-August.
October 6th 2016
Britons woke to news of a so-called 'flash crash' that saw sterling fall an astonishing 5.5% in a matter of minutes in overnight trading in Asia, touching a 31-year low of 1.1985 only to come roaring back amid rumors of a massive error from a thinly-staffed trading desk.
January 17th 2017
Prime Minister Theresa May's keynote speech at Lancaster House on Jan. 17 -- ironically the very venue in which Margaret Thatcher set out the country's EU membership in 1984 - sends the pound reeling to 1.1989 as she reveals her aim to prioritize immigration and border control over single market access.
March 29th 2017
The U.K.'s EU Ambassador, Sir Tim Barrow, hand delivers a letter to EU Council President Donald Tusk, formally triggering Britain's exit from the European Union after 44 years. "We already miss you," Tusk laments in a televised statement, as the pound falls to 1.2406 against the dollar.
