Pick up a Rennie Mackintosh original for just £100

A Clydesdale Bank £100 note bearing the likeness of the Glasgow Art Nouveau artist and architect goes into circulation today

Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond commented: ‘Scotland has produced its own banknotes for over 300 years, marking the culture, heritage, tradition and resilience of Scotland, its people and our financial sector. Clydesdale Bank’s launch of a new banknote family is an indication of its strength and commitment to Scotland.’

Astragal is pleased to see the great man remembered in this way, but wonders if this is an appropriate time to boast about the ‘resilience’ of the Scottish banking system.
