    A message to collectors

    Bristol Pound CIC reserves the right to refuse currency orders which we have reason to believe are being placed with the intention of reselling currency as souvenirs.

    Please note that the purpose of the Bristol Pound is to increase the circulation of money within our local economy, to address the inequality, barriers to social inclusion, and sustainability and environmental concerns associated with the increasing globalisation of our economy.  We are a non-profit organisation, and we gain no income from the sale of current Bristol Pounds as currency.  The money you pay for current Bristol Pounds has to go into a trust account to ensure every Bristol Pound in circulation is backed by sterling. 

    As such, whilst we cannot prevent your buying notes for resale to collectors, this does go against our purpose, and is in fact a drain on our resources (as we still have to administer your transactions) which impacts negatively on us and the work we are trying to do for local people in Bristol.  We would therefore encourage you as a collector and trader either to restrict your purchases to souvenir sets (which, unlike current Bristol Pound currency do provide a small income to us).
