Do you remember the ‘ten bob’ note?

Ten bob was a goodly sum in the olden days. In the 1960's it could buy 13 English-made 'Matchbox' cars, or a complete men’s suit, 11 loaves of bread, a nail varnish, enough aspirin for 30 headaches and a lamp.

It’s hard to believe it’s now been almost 47 years since the ten bob note was last in circulation, and harder still to imagine it ever buying so much today.

On 20th November 1970 the ten shilling - or 'ten bob' - note was officially withdrawn from circulation and replaced with the world’s first seven-sided coin, the 50p.

Today you have the opportunity to own one of those very last ten shilling notes ever to be issued.

Each note features the statement; “I promise to pay the Bearer on Demand the sum of Ten Shillings” and a portrait of Queen Elizabeth on the front and a young Britannia on the back. The 10/- note had quite a short life - it was introduced in 1928 and replaced just over 60 years later.

With limited stock of 10 shilling notes available in their mint condition, we expect a quick sell-out. Each note will arrive in a Presentation Folder with an accompanying Certificate of Authenticity.
