It is a nice addition to my collection.
Product was as described. Wonderful looking, finely made
The silver £5 note was brilliant, but l was a bit disappointed that the reverse was blank, it may not have been possible , maybe due to manufacturing processes to print on the reverse ,l don't know, but l would be interested to here the manufacturers comments please
The 'White Fiver' Fine Silver Banknote
Britain’s most famous banknote now issued in Fine Silver
There are not so many people about today who remember using the White Fiver. But it’s certainly the most famous British banknote ever issued.
And now to mark the 60th Anniversary of its last year of issue, just 1,956 Fine Silver Banknotes have been issued in commemoration.
About the White Fiver
With dimensions of almost 20cm x 12cm, the White Fiver was 2.5 times larger than today’s £5 note.
But not only would it not fit in your wallet today but it was considered too vulnerable for copying, particularly after the Nazi’s Operation Bernhard tried to destabilise the British economy with fake White Fivers.
So it was with great sadness, that we saw our most famous banknote printed for the last time in 1956 – a century and a half after it was first issued by the Bank of England in 1793.
