Note i am only talking about the Elizabeth ones that are already in use and not about the new Charles ones that you are currently making.

So for each of these banknotes i would like to know what happened to it. For example did it enter general ordinary circulation. Did it get put in to a museum or archive or collection. Did it get presented or gifted to someone. Did it get auctioned off. Etc etc etc etc. So with each of these banknotes this is what i would like you to tell me please.

Thank you very much for your help and i look forward to hearing back from you in regards to this.

Yours faithfully,

George Clarke
