The Beauty of The Bristol Pound

The ‘Bristol Pound‘ is one of the most successful and visible examples of community currency and complementary currency, keeping money IN the local economy of Bristol, UK. It is a  joint not-for-profit enterprise between Bristol Pound Community Interest Company and Bristol Credit Union.

 

But today let’s simply take a step back just to appreciate its vibrant local designs. Here are some prior notes,

“Graffiti Tiger” by Alex Lucas.

“Hannah Moore & Bristol Old Vic” by Anthea Page / Juraj Prodaj.

Kim Short

and NEW artists have just been announced.

A six-year-old schoolgirl from Waycroft Academy in Whitchurch is one of the artists whose designs will be going on the new Bristol Pound notes from later this year.
