Did you know?
During the mid 17th Century and following the seizure of gold and silver from the Royal Mint by Charles I, Goldsmiths came to be known as the keepers of running cash. They accepted gold in exchange for written receipts and payback instructions creating the forerunner to the modern banknote. A little later around 1650 Thomas Smith a cloth merchant from Nottingham opened the first provincial bank in the UK and frankly since then not much has changed!
