'British Banknotes' Set of Supersize Commemorative Strikes
For those of us remembering the good old days of shillings and halfpence, it hardly seems possible - but it was over 50 years ago on 13 March 1961 that the elegant White Five Pound Note was withdrawnfrom circulation forever. Commonly referred to as the 'White Fiver' because it was printed on white paper, this banknote is remembered with affection by many of us. Years ago a crisp white five-poundnote in your pocket would have been riches indeed. The note was originally issued in 1793 when, following the outbreak of war with Revolutionary France, a lower denomination was required to replace gold coins. The note was only printed on one side and its design, which remained relatively unchanged for hundreds of years, was particularly elegant. The past centuries have seen many changes, notjust in the role of the Bank of England, but also from the first handwritten bills of exchange through to the complex and sophisticated designs seen today.
