Promotional Notes: Thomas De La Rue (IBNS 1990)

The note measures 240mmx120mm. It is much larger than the notes in our wallets and purses. The design of the promotional notes is exquisite and detailed. The image of William Caxton and his press illustrates the history of printing and its connection with Thomas de la Rue’s banknote history. This note was published in 1990 for teh 20th annual IBNS Congress in London. The reverse (not shown) advertises the London Branch of the IBNS and its monthly meetings – this adds to the cachet and rarity nof this note. Thepromotional notes are very appealing and for me, the size of the notes, the design, the richness of colour, all adds up to a very collectible note indeed.
