George Malcolm Gill was one of the Bank of England’s shortest serving Chief Cashiers. His term of office began in 1988 and by 1991 he had retired and gone to work for the Bank for International Settlements.

Only one £10 note was issued while Gill was Chief Cashier (B354/P379e), this followed the old Pictorial design. It was coloured brown with a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II in State Robes on the front alongside the lily symbol of Florence Nightingale who appears on the back. Also on the back, a vignette showing her work at the Barracks Hospital at Scutari during the Crimean War.

L.K. O’Brien, last issue Britannia £1 AUnc

The O’Brien Britannia £1 note was the last Britannia £1 to be issued by the Bank of England (B273/P369c). During O’Brien’s term as Chief Cashier the Bank decided to issue notes with the portrait of the reigning monarch for the first time in it’s history. Until 1960, the portrait of Britannia had been the only illustration on Bank of England notes. These O’Brien Britannia £1 notes were the very last in that long tradition. They have always proved just that bit more elusive to track down than some of the earlier Britannia issues. These are wonderful notes in spectacular condition from an original block, issued almost 50 years ago. About Uncirculated- the last of the Britannia Pounds.
