Featured Bank Notes

British banknotes, paper money, has a long history dating back to 1695, the year after the founding of the Bank of England. Over the centuries, banknotes have developed in face value even though for most people until 1914, banknotes were rarely seen or used.

It was after the outbreak of WW1 banknotes were produced with lower values, 10/- and £1. These are ‘Treasury Notes’, signed by the Chief Cashier of the Bank of England, John Bradbury. ‘Bradburys’ and ‘Warren Fisher’ notes are very collectible. Some notes are rare and of great value. Collectors of British banknotes are attracted by their design, rarity, currency history and can be seen as an investment.

For most, it is a hobby focussing upon a particular aspect such as Treasury Notes, White £5s, Replacement notes, Experimental notes, Errors, Low serial numbers, Debdens, First and Last runs. Amongst the British and World banknotes on offer here, I hope you will find banknotes to enhance your collection. Have a look at the Provincial Notes (English) on offer.
