The banknotes - denominations 1,5,10,20 and 50 are NO LONGER FOR SALE. The few remaining special edition 100 and 1000 notes are available with proceeds going to keeping this project going now we have enough to share equally between the purchase of £1 million of local debt and the four local causes.
Now it is time to BUY BONDS and make the public explosion of debt as a dramatic act of economic liberation happen.
The bank notes are in the collections of the V&A Museum, Museum of London, Fitzwilliam Museum, William Morris Gallery/Vestry House Museum, Bank of England Museum and Smithsonian. The full set (Full House from the Rebel Bank) was selected for the Royal Society of Painter Printmaker’s National Original Print Exhibition 2018. A Gary 1000 note was selected for the Royal Society of Painter Printmaker’s technique specific exhibition ‘The Masters: Screen and Stone.’
A first edition of denominations 1,5,10,20 and 50 was produced by a team of local money printers at Hoe Street Central Bank between 12-25 March 2018. Between 5-23 June 2018 we focused on the big money - printing an extra ltd edition of 100 and 1000 notes made from old Bank of England tender. Our ltd edition artwork/banknotes have been available for sale online or in HSCB, Walthamstow since March 2018.
All money from the sale of the banknotes sold between March-October 2018 goes towards the 4 local causes featured on the notes and the local payday debt abolition act - buying and writing up £1 million of local payday debt. No project and administration costs have been covered from their sale. We have charged for postage and packing. The images shown here are representative digital mockups. The actual notes follow this colour scheme but vary in tone to screen representation and are hand printed in layers - screen printed to special colour recipes , letterpressed and foil blocked with additional finishing, stamping and signature.
