Banknotes

The Bank of England has been issuing banknotes for over 300 years. During that time, both the notes themselves and their role in society have undergone continual change. From today's perspective, it is commonly accepted that a note that costs a few pence to produce is worth five, ten, twenty or fifty pounds.

Maintaining confidence in the currency is a key role of the Bank of England and one which is essential to the proper functioning of the economy.
