The Britannia Blue was issued in 1956 when the white £5 note was discontinued. It had a very short life because, in 1963, the Bank of England decided to replace it with a series featuring the Queen's portrait.

It has one of the most striking designs of any Bank of England note with a helmeted Britannia on the front and a lion and key on the back.

In crisp EF condition.
