HM Queen Elizabeth II limited edition Collection
The Britannia Pound
The Platinum Jubilee ‘70’ Britannia Pound banknotes were intended as a special tribute and a commemoration of all the festivities surrounding the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the throne.
The banknotes were developed in conjunction with several designers and printed in a high security banknote
printing facility. They depict Queen Elizabeth II and contain the typical security features found in banknotes such as UV inks, unique serial numbers, microtext, holographic foil and banknote engraving. HM Queen Elizabeth II was to have been presented with serial number UKER 000001 44A1.
Both serial numbers 000070 will be graded by PMG and are designated to be auctioned by Stack’s Bowers in January 2023. Aris Maragoudakis, director of World Paper Money at Stack’s Bowers:
“These two notes will be treasured pieces to commemorate the life and service of one of the most paramount historical figures in history that forged paths, and broke barriers during a male dominated time, while modernizing the monarchy, transforming the commonwealth, and being an example to us all of true leadership over an astounding 70 years. It is a great honor to offer these notes to the world in our January New York International Auction with the hope they fall into the hands of a passionate Queen Elizabeth II collector.”
