Five Pound Note "Worth 50k" Spent In Pie Shop

Worth it

Did you know? Several five pound notes are now worth thousands of pounds after they were engraved with a picture of Jane Austen by specialist micro-engraver Graham Short.

Graham has since been spending the notes in various places across the country, allowing these 'golden tickets' go into circulation across the nation.

Well, it turns out the most recent one was spent in a pie shop in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire

According to the BBC, Graham visited the Dickinson & Morris Ye Olde Pork Pie Shoppe to spend his extra-special fiver, which experts believe could be worth up to £50,000 thanks to the tiny engraving. The special notes have also been spent at a bakery in Kelso, Scotland and also a café in Blackwood, Wales.

The final note will be spent in Northern Ireland next week. The engravings are intended to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Austen's death next year, and anyone who finds one is advised to contact the Tony Huggins-Haif Gallery, which launched the project.
