Over the years, several towns and communities in the UK have issued their own paper currency. It was intended to circulate in the local community with traders agreeing to accept these special notes alongside more traditional forms of payment. The benefits were that residents were encouraged to shop locally. The city of Bath adopted a Local Exchange Trading System using paper notes. Quite a few towns took up the idea but sadly now, most of the schemes have closed not helped by the lockdowns during the pandemic which increased the number of contactless payments. We were delighted to be able to offer some of this 2013 Bath Local £1 in Uncirculated condition.
