Provident Bank of Ireland
Dublin 1837

Two Types by serial prefix and design

One date, two Types

Two denominations have been recorded, £1 notes, and 30 Shilling notes. The two denominations are similar in design, and bear a resemblance to banknotes of the Provincial Bank of Ireland of the day.

There are two Types of banknote issued by the Provident Bank of Ireland: Type A is the initial issue, and has a serial number without a prefix letter. Type B notes have a prefix A added above the serial number, and £1 notes of Type B have had the typeface of the bank title on top and 'DUBLIN' on the bottom changed from a sans serif bold to a serif style to match the 30 Shilling notes.

All banknotes recorded are dated March 1, 1837 and are printed uniface.
