Are you using standard TeX, or XeTeX? I assume you're using XeTeX. If  
yes, then make sure you are calling the xunicode.sty package (through  
\usepackage{xunicode}). And make sure your text is encoded (in the  
source window) using UTF-8 encoding. For example, in TeXShop don't  
forget to include the lines:

%!TEX TS-program = xelatex
%!TEX encoding = UTF-8 Unicode

It may also happen that Adobe Garamond does not include the £ sign --  
but I doubt that.
