Our banknotes collection

The Bank of England has produced banknotes since the late 1600s. Our collection includes examples of every note we’ve ever made. We also hold artwork by historic banknote designers, machinery and equipment relating to banknote production and examples of counterfeit and imitation notes. It is the largest collection of Bank of England notes and associated material in the world.
