Bit off topic but I've only even considered the pound for pound expression as something you use when comparing different weight classes in fighting sports (pound=weight), but it actually works well also in this context (pound=money).

Now that I think of it what's the rationale of having the same unit for both weight and currency? :lol:

Quick rip from Wikipedia:

The term originated in the Frankish Empire as a result of Charlemagne's currency reform ("pound" from Latin pondus, a unity of weight) and was subsequently taken to Great Britain as the value of a pound (weight) of silver.
