Bank of England 1997 Hong Kong Handover 12 x Five Pound £5 Banknote Sheet Uncut
Prefix HK97 serial numbers left to right 249556, 149556, 049556, 239556, 139556, 039556, 229556, 129556, 029556, 219556, 119556, and 019556. Singles, mini sheets of 12 and complete overprinted sheet of 35 were produced, mainly for the Hong Kong market. The Bank printed one million notes from 000001 to 999999 but certain numbers had to be withdrawn, including all those beginning with'4', in deference to local tradition. All the prefixes on the sheets are the same HK97, and each note carries a different six-digit serial, which is a departure from the Bank's normal numbering practice. Total sales were 330000 of which the UK allocation was 50 sheets, although more have certainly been re-imported.
