Ten bob was a goodly sum in the olden days. In the 1960's it could buy 6 pints of beer, 10 loaves of bread, or 17 pints of milk.
It’s hard to believe it’s now been over 50 years since the ten bob note was last in circulation, and harder still to imagine it ever buying so much today.
It has such a fascinating history, from being issued by the Government in a wartime emergency, changing colour to avoid forgery from the Nazis, and eventually being replaced by the world’s most popular coin.
On 20th November 1970 the ten shilling - or 'ten bob' - note was officially withdrawn from circulation and replaced with the world’s first seven-sided coin, the 50p.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.
