Paper Money - world Banknotes and Currency

Established 1986 - Member of IBNS

We last updated parts of this site on the 7th. January 2015.


Welcome to my web site. I have been dealing in paper money in the U.K. since 1986 and I hold a large and varied stock of banknotes. As a collector, you are almost certain to find items here which will be of interest to you. This site hosts my full current paper money and banknote price lists which are posted on a regular basis. There is a link to my other site where you will find many hundred of notes on offer, each one fully illustrated. The store houses a British Paper Money section with banknotes from England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man and Gibraltar. If you collect world notes you will find hundreds of bargains illustrated in the World Banknotes section of There is also a link to The Banknote Occasional. This site is operated by myself and John Bouvier, my son-in-law and specialises in banknote sets and offers on groups of notes from many countries of the world.

All prices on this website are quoted in GB£ (GB Pounds)

This started off as an occasional e-magazine of special offers - mainly groups or sets of banknotes. This format is ongoing with new pages being added from time to time, but the site now also has a permanent section with notes listed by country. If you want banknote sets this is a good place to look.

The Banknote Store

Hundreds of banknotes for sale - each one illustrated. This site operates on a shopping cart basis and payments are made through a secure server.

I pride myself on offering a first class mail order service for all collectors of banknotes and paper money. My world banknote lists are updated on a monthly basis, and lists of British Isles notes are updated quarterly, so if you check back regularly you will always find new material on offer. All notes are offered subject to prior sale. Banknotes illustrated in any of the featured areas of my website are subject to change depending upon stock availability. Illustrations are for identification purposes only and are not necessarily the notes on offer.

I have tried to design my website with the banknote collector (rather than the computer wizard) in mind. In I have included hundreds of illustrations so that, where ever possible you can see what you are buying. I think you will find it straightforward and easy to navigate with all sections adequately linked. If you do come across any links which do not work, please let me know so that I can repair them.

Needless to say, I also buy banknotes. If you have anything old or interesting for sale, particularly items which are missing in my current sales lists, please send me details so that I can make you an offer.

Thank you for visiting, and I hope I can be of service to you.

Most of the references for world banknotes are taken from the Standard Catalogues of World Paper Money, published by Krause.
