Hmmm.. on the US keyboard the shift-3 produces a # symbol and Opt-3 produces a symbol. Is your options key stuck down?

Is your Input (System Preferences -> International -> Input Menu) set to "British" or "US" English?

EDIT: I tested it out and changed my default input to British and Shift-3 becomes a pund symbol, so this might be the culprit for you..

Make sure the language settings in the international preferences are on UK and not US. Otherwise, I dunno what's happening...

For the time being, you should be able to type the symbol with ALT-3. :)
Good luck.
