All images of Irish Government-issued banknotes are reproduced according to the restrictions placed upon the colour web reproduction of Irish currency, namely that such banknotes be at a resolution of 72dpi at 1:1 scale and be overprinted SPECIMEN. Any other reproduction may constitute forgery in the case of Legal Tender Notes. The Central Bank of Ireland is the issuing Authority of currency in the Republic of Ireland, and the holder of the copyright to the design of A Series, B Series, and C Series Legal Tender Notes (1928-2001), and of the Consolidated Banknotes (1929-1941).

Permission to reproduce images of Northern Ireland banknotes issued by AIB (Includes First Trust Bank and Provincial Bank of Ireland), Northern Bank (which includes those of the Belfast Banking Company) and Ulster Bank was refused by these banks, and consequentially there are no pictures of their current issued Northern Ireland notes on this web site, other than Specimen notes.
