More Information

The notes were designed by 'Mr John Harrison', a portrait engraver. All 'Lavery' notes depected a river mask on the reverse of the note. The 'River God Masks' were copies of the masks adorning the Customs House in Dublin.

The five pound 'River Mask' is one of the River Lagan. All 'Lavery' notes were bi-lingual, English to the left and Irish (Gaelic) to the right. There were 159,250,000 of these notes issued, most were exchanged for the 'John Scotus Eriugena' £5 note which replaced the 'Lavery' note in 1977. Most of the remaining £5 'Lavery' notes were exchanged during the Euro changeover in 2001. This is an original note in circulated condition.
