The Treasury banknotes, first issued during the First World War, stand out as some of the most influential and interesting banknotes in British history.
And now today you have the chance to own the iconic 3rd Issue Treasury £1 banknote, struck from 5g of Fine Silver.
The banknote that saved the country
During the First World War, the government took the unprecedented step of issuing banknotes to the value of £1 and 10 shillings.
Treasury notes played a vital role in keeping the economy moving during the First World War and for the first time in England and Wales, paper money became normal currency, used by ordinary people.
These banknotes were also the first British notes to feature a portrait of the reigning monarch, making them stand out as extremely influential in the development of the notes we are so familiar with today.
