New commemorative 1-pound note for Guernsey

The island of Guernsey has issued a commemorative banknote of 1 pound on 4 July 2013 commemorating the 200th anniversary of Thomas de la Rue's first commercial venture. Nowadays De La Rue is the largest printer of banknotes in the world and prints over 150 different currencies.

The special banknote will be issued by the States of Guernsey and 300.000 pieces will be available to the public. The note is like the existing 1 pound note, but enhanced by a special design featuring Thomas de la Rue on the back and a special TD/LR prefix in the serial number.  This is the first series of 1-pound notes to feature the signature of States Treasurer Bethan Haines. You can order them here (which I did as well).
