This note is from the Royal Bank of Scotland's very first set of banknotes, printed in 1727.
Over the centuries our constituent banks have issued banknotes in hundreds of different designs. This section explores some of the most interesting, unusual and influential among them.
This is an example of the Royal Bank's longest-used banknote design, which was in circulation - with minor alterations - from 1832 to 1968.
The 'interim' series was issued immediately after the Royal Bank of Scotland had merged with National Commercial Bank of Scotland.
