Introduction to Banknotes
Banknotes (4 examples)
These banknotes were never intended for monetary use. They are a light-hearted political comment, which raises the profile of both the republican and loyalist campaigns.
They are created from photocopies of existing bank notes with other images superimposed upon them. A bit of fun really. The Loyalist examples are of a particularly high quality.
