Banknotes Auction Report 9th December 2020

11th December 2020

The current COVID-19 heath crisis has led many companies to change their practices to bring them into line with the current government safety guidelines. So, for the safety of our customers and our staff, our 9th December 2020 Banknotes sale was a closed-door auction, with no room bidders allowed.


We were however able to offer viewing of the sale on the Friday, Monday and Tuesday before the auction, on a strictly by appointment only basis. Unfortunately, we are still unable to welcome the public to view on the morning of the sale.


There was a great deal of interest in the auction with many bidders placing book bids and over 30 bidders on the telephone during in the sale.


Beginning with the English banknotes section this Bradbury 1914 first issue 10 shillings realised £168 and this 1914 second issue £1 sold for £288.



In the world section highlights include this Isle of Man Lloyds Bank 1938 £1 which achieved £192 and this Jamaica Barclays Bank 1940 £10 realised £264.


This Iraq 1942 1 dinar sold for £396 and this Iraq 1942 half dinar achieved a massive £1,260!
