A limited number of special Diamond Jubilee Guernsey £20 notes are being released, the Treasury and Resources Department has announced.

The notes include the prefix QE60, a commemorative laurel wreath and additional wording.

A total of 150,000 of the notes have been issued and will circulate alongside the current £20 note.

However, the department is allowing collectors the chance to obtain a mint condition note.

Anyone interested can email philatelic@guernseypost.com to get in touch with the Guernsey Philatelic Bureau at Envoy House.

The notes have been designed and produced by De La Rue Currency, a company started by Guernseyman Thomas De La Rue in the 19th Century.
