We are delighted to be able to offer the exceptionally attractive Royal Bank of Scotland Polymer £10. It features a portrait of Mary Somerville, a 19th century science writer, astronomer and polymath. She was the joint first female member of the Royal Astronomical Society with Caroline Hirschel. She was also an advocate of women’s rights and the Oxford Somerville College (formerly all female) was named after her. Otters at play make a charming reverse.
Way back in 1992 when these £1 notes were issued by the Royal Bank of Scotland we referred to the European Union as the EEC or European Economic Community. Just 12 nations were members. In 1992 the EEC was held in Edinburgh which is the reason this commemorative £1 note was issued by the Royal Bank of Scotland.(P356)It follows the regular design with a portrait of Lord Ilay on the front and Edinburgh Castle on the back. In addition the prefix has been changed to EC and the blue European flag is shown in the watermark area.
