The extremely valuable fiver engraved with a portrait of Jane Austen was found in Northern Ireland, it was confirmed yesterday.
One more is still out there though and could well be in England.
Micro-artist Graham Short said yesterday the third note had been found in Charlie’s Bar.
He told the BBC: “An old lady found it and she said ‘I don’t want my picture in the papers’ and she said ‘if it sells for a lot of money it will be better if young children could benefit from it’.”
“An old lady found it and she said ‘I don’t want my picture in the papers’”
This comes as Graham spent a note, with a 5mm picture of 18th century author Jane Austen, in each of the four home nations.
Graham came up with the idea of engraving Jane Austen on the transparent part of the new plastic Bank of England £5 notes to mark the 200th anniversary of her death.
He has included a different quote around each one ensuring each note is unique.
All the sought-after notes also start with the same serial number: AM32 885.
Those who found the Welsh and Scottish notes said they intend to keep them rather than sell them for the £50k.
Old £5 notes are due to be worthless very soon.
While these notes are not the only currency worth a fortune.
