1826 Thomas Stace Sixpence Currency Note
Prior to the Sterling Money Act of 1926, the value of the note was expressed in two currencies. The face value of Sixpence was redeemable in Spanish dollars at a conversion rate where one Spanish dollar was equal to five shillings - ie. the note was valued at one tenth of a Spanish dollar. The sixpence note above is dated 12 June, 1826. The ones below are dated 10 June and 20 June, 1826.
After the Sterling Money Act was passed, Stace issued sixpence denominated promissory notes which were payable in currency.
