Banknote of the Month - May 2011

Here is a beautiful gem from Northern Ireland! It was issued by Allied Irish Bank in Belfast. Several Northern Irish and Scottish banks have a special arrangement with the Bank of England which allows them to issue their own banknotes, backed by British Pound Sterling. Because they are naturally more rare than Bank of England notes, they are sought after by collectors.
