You might not know the company’s name, but you are definitely familiar with its biggest product – the £64bn of UK banknotes in circulation.

|NZ Herald||Old NZ coins, notes net big dollars at Aussie auction|
March 31, 2009
If you are looking to invest in old New Zealand coins or banknotes, an Australian sale has the goods but you will need deep pockets. A three-day auction of important Australian and world coins, medals and banknotes which began in Sydney today, features a range of New Zealand currency, long withdrawn from circulation but often selling for thousands of times their face value.
A 1935 threepence was expected to sell at the Noble Numismatics auction for at least $2000. The coin was toned with full original mint bloom, said the auctioneers. It was "uncirculated and rare in this condition, one of the finest known".
Another uncirculated coin, a 1935 George V Waitangi crown, was expected to sell for $4500.
