A collection of Danish bank notes from Kenneth Branagh’s 1996 adaptation of the Shakespeare classic Hamlet.
When Prince of Denmark Hamlet (Kenneth Branagh) returns home to find his father murdered and his mother marrying his murderer – his uncle, he vows vengeance.
A selection of these bank notes can be seen in the scene where Polonius (Richard Briers) is discussing Hamlet with Reynaldo (Gerard Depardieu.) Reynaldo leaves the meeting taking with him a selection of paperwork including some bank notes.
The notes are printed on slightly textured and discoloured paper. There are decorative borders running down the length of the notes, patterns on either end stating the name of the bank and an ornate emblem featuring the name of the bank. On the top left is an issue number and in the middle is Dutch writing including the issue date – 1819. Underneath this is a signature. All bank notes feature the same print and are in excellent condition.
