Comments

Issued by the Bank of Biafra as part of its second series of banknotes, and was issued into circulation in 1969. This denomination, along with other banknotes in denominations of £5-, £1-, 10/- and 5/-, were issued in response, not only to a shortage of circulating currency, but also of the poor quality of the notes and lack of diversified denominations to support the breakaway state's economy and war efforts.
