  South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands (SGSSI) is a British overseas
territory in the southern Atlantic Ocean. It is a remote and inhospitable collection
of islands, consisting of South Georgia – which measures approximately 106
miles (170 km) by 18 miles (29 km) and is by far the largest island in the
territory – and a group of smaller islands known as the South Sandwich Islands.
There is no native population on any of the islands, and the only present
inhabitants are the British Government Officer, Deputy Postmaster, scientists,
and support staff from the British Antarctic Survey who maintain scientific bases
at Bird Island and at the capital, King Edward Point, as well as museum staff
at nearby Grytviken.
No private issues of South Georgia & the South Sandwich
Islands banknotes have been found. Naturally, if there's any activity on the island,
the British Pound is used as a local paper currency.
