‘5 Punt’

date : 2008

size : 11½” x 8½”

medium : collage

notes : This design was based on the Welsh 5 bob/ shilling notes issued from Llandudno in the late 1960s/ early 1970s - the border was originally used on a Malaysian note issued by the occupying Japanese forces in 1941. Mr Williams (who issued the Welsh notes) adapted it, and Brian adapted his!

comment : “Before I put any sketch ideas down on paper, I did some research into the history of Welsh banking, and money. Between 1968 and 1971, a Mr. Williams issued Welsh currency from Llandudno and caused a bit of a stir.”
