The White £5 Banknote Ingot

Is this the most famous banknote ever?

Introductory Offer – Yours FREE (+p&p) when you trial The History of Banknotes Ingot Collection

At first, banknotes had to win over an unconvinced public that could not see the link between a piece of paper and a pile of Gold. Now, they’re some of the most sought-after numismatic collectables around most notably the White Fiver.

In 1942, British 'White Notes' production began at Sachsenhausen concentration camp as the Nazis aimed to counterfeit currency, intending to distribute fake British banknotes across Europe for economic sabotage. Despite the effort to print over 70 million notes, the plot failed, and England withdrew all circulating notes after the war.
