After 1929 The Provincial Bank of Ireland Limited had to change all its banknotes from payable in Dublin to payable in Belfast. This was because Ireland was now an independent nation and different from Northern Ireland which was a part of Great Britain. These crisp Uncirculated notes are dated 1926 and payable in Dublin so they had to be destroyed. They drilled holes in them to show they were no longer payable and legal tender. A few years ago a small group of them were found and they sold for over £100 each. We finally tracked down the owner and bought all that they had left. Remember these £1 notes are almost 100 years old and in crisp Uncirculated condition, they are just beautiful. The catalogue price is £75.00 but when Coincraft – Britain’s Coin Shop buys right, we sell right. So you can add one of these Rare Irish 1926 Pounds to your collection for just £39.50.

Cuba Granma 20 pesos 1964 Specimen P97b Unc

These 20 pesos Specimen notes were issued by Cuba in 1964. (P97) The portrait of Camilo Cienfuegos is on the front while on the back we finda depiction of the disembarkation from the yacht Granma in 1956. On board were 82 fighters intent on overthrowing the regime of Fulgencia Batista to initiate the Cuban Revolution. Batista predicted where the fighters would land and sent helicopters and planes to attack the group. 62 were killed but among the survivors was Fidel Castro and as they say the rest is history. The yacht, which soon became an icon for Cuban communism can now be seen in the Museum of the Revolution in Havana. Crisp Uncirculated 20 pesos 1964 Specimen at just £8.95 each
