What's the difference between a guinea and a pound?

Asked by elbanditoroso (15756 points ) May 15th, 2014

I’m reading a book that takes place in Great Britain in the 1920s. They make reference to guineas and pounds as money, but it isn’t clear to me what the difference is, and what eah was worth back then.

Any Brits here with a long memory?
