Bristol Pound

Bristol artist Banksy nearly made it on to a £5 note, but not quite. This specimen £5 note from the Bank of Bristol, depicting a tiger scratching graffito O Liberty! on a wall, is clearly inspired by Banksy. Bristol launched its Bristol Pound today, in hope of keeping local wealth in local pockets. Hundreds of independent businesses have already signed up to use the currency (CLICK). Jethro Brice created the beautiful fox-and-magpie design for the £1 note (CLICK).
