The United Kingdom
of Britain, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland has two constituent territories
in which private banks are chartered to issue banknotes. A curious
survival of 19th century practice that is, but more fun for the collectors.
Would love to see the enabling documents, reserve requirements, etc., but
not enough to actually go look for them.
