Northern Ireland Issues 1970s

Northern Ireland Issue

Many banks produced new smaller more modern note designs in and around 1970.

The National Bank was taken over by the Bank of Ireland in 1966, and the Belfast Banking Company was merged into the Northern Bank in 1970, both of them being owned by Midland Bank. A new series of modern small-sized banknotes of the Northern Bank replaced the older issues of the Belfast and Northern banks. Banknotes of the National Bank were withdrawn from circulation.
