Although the first bank notes produced by The Bank of England appeared in the late 17th Century, it wasn't until 1960 that the portrait of a British Monarch graced a banknote.

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II gave permission for Her portrait to be used for the first time in 1956, and the first banknote ever to bear the effigy of a Monarch was issued four years later - the British £1 Banknote.
