A genuine Banksy fake tenner. Featuring a portrait of Princess Diana replacing that of Her Majesty the Queen and printed "I Promise to Pay the Bearer on Demand the Ultimate Price." The reverse features the Darwin portrait and the statement: "Trust No One." Handed out at the preview night of Banksy's Santa's Ghetto exhibition in 2004 in relatively large numbers, there was also a limited edition print of a full uncut sheet. As is essential with these banknotes, this example has cast-iron, documented provenance (beware of expensive imitations!). Examples of the genuine fake-tenner are held in the collection of The British Museum and The Royal Numismatic Society.
Provenance: From the collection of the artist's long-time agent and gallerist Steve Lazarides, with his signed and fingerprinted certificate of provenance included.
