How to sell your £5 English Paper Banknote?

If you think your five banknotes might be worth more than its face value, the quickest way to sell it on eBay.

Here are a few tips to get you started:

Include close-up photos

Put the note’s selling point in the auction title too, e.g., an AA01 serial.

Always start the auction at atleast £5.50

You’ll pay 10% closing fees if the item sells and take into account paypal fees.

Rule of thumb your auction will need to close at atleast £6 to make a profit (not including postage).

Post with an insured, signed-for service with online tracking

We recommend using Royal Mail Special Delivery Guaranteed this covers cash sent in the post for loss or damage up to £500.

If you think you have an especially valuable note, consider selling via a specialist dealer.

Find them through the British Numismatic Trade Association. As a rule of thumb, always try at least three and play them off against each other.
