All Ireland 1922–1928

All Ireland 1922–1928
Pre-Currency Commission Irish Free State Issues

Most of the banks produced new modern small sized notes at this time which circulated both in the Irish Free State and in Northern Ireland.

After Irish independence in 1921 the banknotes of the banks with the right of note issue continued to circulate throughout the island of Ireland. Most of the banks produced new design notes around the period of the creation of the Irish free State. Banknotes also became smaller and more modern in appearance around this time, and many were now printed on both sides. English currency also continued to circulate.

Banknotes of all of the issuing banks continued to be reduced in size in and around 1922.

This period of transition in the note issues of the banks produced interesting sub-varieties in the banknotes of some of the banks.
