It shows Queen Elizabeth wearing a crown facing forward to the right of the front. It displays Britannia seated and the denomination to the left of the front.

Date: 1993-1998. The design was copyrighted in 1993.
Printer: Bank of England.
Size: Measures ~5 9/16" by ~3".
Pick Number: P 386a and is listed in the banknote book as B194a.
Condition: I would grade this banknote as a nice about uncirculated or much better with all the details being very well preserved. We believe the banknote has never been circulated and the reason we give it an AU grade instead of UNC is the fact that there is a small bend at the top edge above the security thread which more than likely happened when the note was counted out by a teller at the bank. The note has no other creases, folds, or wrinkles. It is clean with no stains, graffiti, pinholes, tears, or splits. The edges are intact with no roughness and the corners are intact and fully squared. The note retains all of its original stiffness, crispiness, sheen, and displays nice embossing. This is a beautiful note in excellent condition deserving a spot in your collection. Please see the scans for additional condition information.
