      • Find any Old/New UK and foreign bank notes. Any unwanted currency from ANY country and of any age, so all of those obsolete pre-euro notes are fantastic!

      • Collect items from all your friends and family too.

      • Place your items in an envelope or jiffy bag and send them to the free post address.
