A note to remember

Today in 1797, The Bank of England officially released the first £1 note into general circulation. It was officially withdrawn from circulation in 1988, after the release of the Series D design (known as the “Pictorial Series”) featuring Sir Isaac Newton on the reverse was issued in 1978 and also the £1 coin, released in 1983.

Today the value of an original, mint condition £1 note can be anywhere from £250 – £2000.
