G M Gill Historical £5 B357 A01 Prefix Unc

In 1990, the Bank of England unveiled a new series of banknotes. The first denomination to appear was the £5. It was distinguished by a much larger portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the front. The back featured the portrait of railway engineer George Stephenson, alongside a vignette of his most famous locomotive The Rocket (B357) Graham Gill was Chief Cashier. The first prefix for this new design was the letter A. We can offer this important note in two ways both in Uncirculated - notes with the very first prefix A01.

D H F Somerset £10 B346 AUnc

D H F Somerset £10 B346 AUnc

D H F Somerset served as Chief Cashier at the Bank of England from 1980-1988. During that time there were 4 different £10 notes issued. We are delighted to be able to offer choice examples of the first variety with the reference B346. This was the issue with the least number of notes printed, maybe because the prefixes were a continuation from those issued with J B Page’s signature. The front has a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II in State Robes while the back honours Florence Nightingale. A vignette of her work in Scutari during the Crimea War also appears. Choice AUnc examples of Somerset’s First £10 at just £75 each Limited availability.
