Paying pound notes to a sterling account in Crete?

Postby TweetTweet » Fri Apr 29, 2016 11:57 am

I apologise is this is a silly question, but would there be any issues if I wanted to do the above?

Looks like they still have value Bob,

General questions about banknotes
Are old Bank of England notes worthless?
No; all Bank of England notes retain their face value for all time. If your local bank, building society or Post Office is not willing to accept these notes then they can be exchanged with the Bank of England in London. For more information on how to exchange Bank of England banknotes that have been withdrawn from circulation see the exchanging banknotes page.


I would be surprised if any Greek Bank would wish to handle them though.

Interesting link Steve. All I need now is some 'used fivers' from long ago! Bob.
