Guernsey issued new £1 commemorative Banknote

Guernseyman Thomas De La Rue's name is synonymous with the printing of money around the world. The State of Guernsey issued a new £1 banknote on July 4, 2013 to mark the 200th Anniversary of his first commercial venture.

The commemorative note is similar to the existing £1 note but is enhanced by a special design featuring Thomas De La Rue on the reverse of the note. It is also the first series of £1 notes to feature the signature of States Treasurer Bethan Haines.
