// Set the currency of the site to be in GBP (Pounds Sterling).

I'm affraid that in the current version , you are going to have to hack some code ( look for example in sapphire\core\model\fieldtypes\Currency.php)...

I don't know what the status on the commerce module is @ the moment. I'm anxiously awaiting the new version as well .... ;)

there must be some more settings elsewhere...
