'tis indeed. Said Nile, who'd recognised it too.

Isn't it illegal to reproduce any part of the Coinage of the Realm? Anyway, Senji's safe, it's only Treason and Piracy on the High Seas that carry the death penalty nowadays.

Surely banknotes aren't coinage? If they were, wouldn't they be legal tender throughout the UK?

They are. Is this an embittered Scotsman speaking?

To which? English banknotes aren't legal tender in Northern Ireland or Scotland.

No note of value more than £1, and no note issued by Scottish Banks is Legal Tender in Scotland; and all £1 notes issued in England have been demonetised.

I wouldn't have thought so: that'd mean that you couldn't show money on the telly, or in pictures, or in parodies which have bits of it changed.

They indeed used to be anxious about doing exactly that – at least, at all closely. Something changed several years ago that made them less nervous.

Last time I checked the rule was something like you couldn't reproduce a double sided whole note within 25% of the original size. I can't remember exactly, but it was surprisingly sensible -- I assume the reasoning is something like "Anyone who finds they've been paid in LJ userpics of money deserves what they get" :)

Actually doing so is quite hard thanks to the EURion constellation. It was impressive how much the scan quality improved when I clipped that out of my target area....

Nothing carries the death penalty in the UK since the Human Rights Act 1998 was signed into law.
