The Birmingham Pound: An Introduction

We are proposing a new sterling Birmingham currency to be spent with or between locally-owned business, keeping more spending power within the city and benefiting its people again and again.

A Birmingham Pound could:

  • increase circulation of spend in Birmingham, benefiting local people and the city economy
  • help this increased local money circulation reach those who need it
  • support diversity, health and networking of local businesses
  • higher social capital – linking the local economy to local communities
  • reduce environmental footprint through local resource loops and transport
  • increase local distinctiveness and identity across the city
