Bank of Ireland 1929–continuing

Post#1 » Sat Dec 02, 2017 1:07 pm

Bank of Ireland first Northern Ireland issue.

This design was originated in 1922. The place of payment was changed from Dublin to Belfast for the Northern Ireland issue. Otherwise the design remained largely unaltered.

Four denominations were issued.

The design continued up to 1958, with just one major alteration. One Pound notes had their main colour changed from green to blue in 1936.

The £5 note with date 1 October 1958 was the final date of this series, and the last note of this classic design with the row of heads and two statues.

Yes, it was the end of an era when this £5 note was issued. The first date of this core design of Twin Hibernias and Mercury Heads appeared in 1838, so the design lasted for around 120 years, a world record perhaps?

The next Northern Ireland series did retained some elements of the classic design with the Mercury Heads but as a less prominent feature. The 1967 issue with printed signature of W.E.Guthrie as agent are scarce, particularly in high grade.
