The front portrait of Gustavo Adolfo Becquer (poet, writer, journalist) was painted by his older brother Valeriano. Can't find any info on the "Women with Parasol" on the back but likely painted by Valeriano too.

Here's another favourite from 1965 (young portrait of QEII):

Bank of England 5 note signed by Jasper Quintus Hollom, who became Chief Cashier in 1963:


This was the first Bank of England 5 note to show a portrait of the monarch. I have vague memories of this design of note in circulation, but by the time I was rich enough to have 5, the notes had changed to the Duke of Wellington design! I got this note for face value thanks to an American tourist who was on one of my guided tours, who had brought it back from a previous vacation in England!

Sweden 1962, 50 kronor.

A 14 x 12 cm note from the last year for this type of 50 kronor banknote. The text on the note still claims that it can be redeemed in gold coin at the Swedish Riksbank, although that possibility has been suspended since 1931.

Amazing Swedish note, erafjel! Looks more like something from the 1860s than from the 1960s!

Bank of England Ten Shillings, signed by L K O'Brien, Letter-Number-Number prefix, issued 1961:



Also from 1961, a 100-Korun note from Czechoslovakia:
