Issued Three Pound Notes

Post#1 » Sat Apr 30, 2016 11:55 pm

Three Pounds is one of the more sought-after denominations. A rare denomination.
Bank of Ireland £3 notes are the rarest.

This is the earliest Bank of Ireland £3 note that I have come across.
The scarcest Bank of Ireland notes tend to be from this era, when the bank was starting to add branch names to its notes. This banknote lists Carlow and Kilkenny as branch offices.

It appears that the Provincial Bank of Ireland may have adopted the £3 denomination before the Bank of Ireland. A £3 Provincial Bank proof is known with the date 1826.

There is supposed to be a very early Ulster Bank 3 Pounder also, 1840s I think.

@Ploughman
Thanks for that, well spotted. I was moving some of the furniture around and changed the pic urls! :oops: Fixed now.
