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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
