Bank of Limerick. Maunsell, George & Co. 1815-1820

George Maunsell, John Kennedy, Robert Hedges Maunsell

This bank produced a range of denominations. One of my favourite note designs. The notes are relatively common, and a lot of unissued remainder notes are around. Here’s two for starters. The 1 guinea & half is an interesting small note denomination.

The Maunsell Bank of Limerick notes are interesting as they are an early example of printing on both sides of the note. I attach the reverse of an 1819 1 Guinea note.

An issued 30 Shilling note from 1816, and a £5 note with the reverse design showing thru.

This bank issued a good range of denomoinations, with a good solid design and printed on the reverse too.
