\pounds is what you need.

Thank you . It works with \pounds. –  Abhishek Sep 15 '11 at 13:25
    
Although, it doesn't work everywhere. For example MathOverflow is processed with MathJax and that doesn't seem to recognise either \pounds or \textsterling. –  isomorphismes Feb 12 '13 at 17:41

I guess this should be \pounds, according to http://selinap.com/2008/07/latex-special-characters/

There are very effective resources for finding symbols (not only math symbols), as suggested here: How to look up a math symbol?

If you use inputenc then you can just write £:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\begin{document}
£ etc
\end{document}
