New £B1 Bristol Pound Souvenir Paper Note
The Bristol Pound has gained international attention as a flagship local currency, with the aim of keeping money within the city, and supporting the local community. Over £B800,000 was spent in the first two and half years of the Bristol Pound. We think it's a great idea, and are happy to accept Bristol Pounds at our checkout.
The Bristol Pound isn't just a good idea, it's also the most beautiful currency there is - at least we think so! The #NewBristolPounds notes show the winning designs from a competition that received hundreds of entries from school children, students, professional designers and amateurs alike.
This souvenir set of an unused and unissued £B1 note comes in a plastic holder with a full certificate of authenticity.
Note: not to be exchanged for goods and services as part of the scheme. Souvenir Only.
