Submission + - Bristol prints its own local currency (independent.co.uk)

c0lo writes: The West Country city launched its own local currency to great fanfare yesterday with the Lord Mayor handing over a £B1 note in symbolic exchange for a round loaf of granary bread made by local baker Joe Wheatcroft, who said he would put his first piece of Bristolian cash towards buying a dairy cow.

Independent mayor candidate George Ferguson says if he is elected he would be happy to be paid in Bristol Pounds.

The 5 Bristol pound denomination is Banksy note, featuring a design tribute to the renowned graffiti artist.
