Legal Tender Notes: B Series 1976-1993

Legal Tender Notes (B Series)
1976-1993 (Types 15-19)

In the period 1976 to 1982 The Central Bank of Ireland replaced the A Series banknotes with the new B Series design. The main reasons for the new design were to modernise the look of the currency, making the notes smaller, and to make banknotes more secure and difficult to forge by incorporating state of the art security features.
