Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet

Danish Bank Notes

Stock #75378

“So gentlemen, with all my love I do commend me to you, and what so poor a man as Hamlet is may do to express his love and friending to you, God willing, shall not lack. Let us go in together, and still your fingers on your lips, I pray. The time is out of joint. O cursed spite that ever I was born to set it right.”

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.

Materials: Paper.
