One million notes

Post by Mac »

A Bank of Ireland recent issue 1000000 note. It looks like the sixth zero was added by hand after 100000 was machine set.
The second note below it is the first note of the following prefix 000001

Those 1000000 are highly collectable and interesting being literally 1 in a million. Some notes of the Northern, Danske and Ulster Bank have 7 digits in the serial number. I wonder if this opens up the possibility for a 10 million note ?

Possibly. It would be a nice one to see one of those!

Happened to get a 1,000,000 C series block a few years ago. Sold on the relevant notes and packaging card at the time but came across a photocopy I took of it back then in case anyone is interested in seeing how they were packaged. Sorry the quality isn’t great.

A nice set to have. Sure is a shame they stopped printing million notes in the Series C.

I remember getting a few of these cards during the C Series years — important to verify that the system of Replacement notes taking the place of 1000000 notes was in use. You never know with banknote printers.

This one also shows that FFF (24.09.96) was being used to replace notes printed with dates in 1999 (15.01.99).
