The World Cup is a distant memory now, remember that Spain-Portugal game? Nah. Exactly. But you still miss England, don’t you? All those beautiful sunny evenings spent with your mates in the pub, gone now. Etched into your memories forever. Don’t worry though, you can still win something if you find one of four £5 notes worth £50,000.
The notes are worth that bonkers amount because they’ve been illustrated by world-famous miniature artist Graham Short. He’s drawn a tiny Harry Kane on six fivers—one for each goal he scored at the World Cup.
Three of the notes are now in circulation, one of each in England, Scotland, and Wales. “I spent the first Harry in Meriden, the very centre of England, and only a few miles from the M40/M42 junction; so that one could travel in any direction”, said Short. “For the Welsh one, I went to Merthyr Tydfil, the former mining town where my father was born. It’s not a wealthy area, and I’m hoping that it could help to change the life of someone who lives around there.” So, it could mean more joy for Welsh and Scottish people this summer thanks to the English football team, along with someone in Northern Ireland when Short pops over there to spend the fourth. The FA and Harry have dibs on the remaining two, which is nice.
