They're so crap.
I have 8 £1 banknotes and nowhere takes them. Are they even legal tender? Meh.
English places just don't tend to take them because they're RACIST!
same with your tenners.
they smell of irn bru and tamazipam.
are NOT legal tender.
is this a joke?
it's pedantry in the extreme
it's the truth. anyone in england is within their rights to not accept them if they don't want to for whatever reason (usually to do with counterfieting).
you're legally entitled to refuse any purchase that involves more than 20 1p pieces. it's still stupid to do so..
yes. i'd have thought so. presumably all transactions are mutual ones so .... yeah
Royal bank of scotland notes are legal tender, others less so.
RBS were given a charter by the Bank of England to produce the notes, and so they are actually Bank of England notes.
from the Bank Of England website.
the royal bank of scotland and bank of scotland are not the same. anyway this is from the RBS website
There are more Royal Bank banknotes circulating in Scotland than those of any other bank but, with the exception of temporary provisions during both World Wars, Scottish banknotes have never been 'legal tender' even in Scotland [!]. Today, no banknote qualifies as 'legal tender' north of the Border, although they remain legal currency. The notes may also circulate freely in England and Wales, although branches of the Royal Bank there may not issue them.
i don't know what the difference is between 'legal tender' and 'legal currency'.
i'm off to watch 'posh nosh'.
more reading clears things up
right, i'm off
n short ‘No’ these notes are not legal tender; only Bank of England notes are legal tender but only in England and Wales.
The term legal tender does not in itself govern the acceptability of banknotes in transactions. Whether or not notes have legal tender status, their acceptability as a means of payment is essentially a matter for agreement between the parties involved. Legal tender has a very narrow technical meaning in relation to the settlement of debt. If a debtor pays in legal tender the exact amount he owes under the terms of a contract, he has good defence in law if he is subsequently sued for non-payment of the debt. In ordinary everyday transactions, the term ‘legal tender’ has very little practical application.
Poundland, I was too lazy to complain.
Had this problem before as well.
Also, used to get these Bank of N. Ireland notes at Celtic Park, had to spend them as quickly as possible in shops that would actually accept them.
Got a funny looking fiver last night, was told by the barmaid that it was just one if the 'new look' ones. Managed to spend it okay today so I guess I believe her.
The people that won't accept Scottish notes are actually just cunts.
I've got one that I've kept for at least six years, never seen another one since. I wonder if I tried to spend it, they;d actually take it? Not that I want to spend it, it's so coooool!
They are very cool but i'm sure they were pretty limited edition so there's not many floating about.
I reckon it'd get refused, they're so rare some people probably haven't seen them.
So you can actually buy a round with one coin...cool!!
That's two pints outside of London
I'm assuming some kind of SU venue?!
In the north east.
AND 90 scottish pound notes. i rule!!
And you get change!
No wonder you Glasgow types are in such poor health!
