Rare Bank Notes Raise £1000

Rare bank notes that were printed specially to mark the Queens Diamond Jubilee went on sale in last weeks Furniture, Clocks & Works of Art auction, raising a fantastic £1000 for The STV appeal. 

The Royal Bank of Scotland produced ten of the limited edition ten pound notes, all with consecutive serial numbers prefixed ‘STV’ with five notes portraying images of the Queen through the decades. These five notes were mounted together in a double sided frame to be sold at McTear’s Furniture & Works of Art auction that took place on Thursday 16th August.

Before the auction, Elizabeth Partyka, deputy director of channels at STV commented on the auction saying it was marvellous news for the STV Appeal with these rare £10 notes anticipated to raise considerably more than their face value. This they did, with an incredible £1000 raised to help children living in poverty in Scotland.

Commenting on the sale, Brian Clements, Managing Director of McTear’s said: “It is extremely rare for a bank to produce special edition notes which makes this collection extremely valuable. This is a fantastic opportunity for someone to not only own some very collectable bank notes, but to also raise much needed funds for the STV Appeal”. McTear’s are delighted to be supporting John and the campaign and are very pleased to be able to raise lots of money to help those children in Scotland who are affected by poverty.
