This is the front of a twenty shillings banknote issued by the Perth Banking Company on 2 February 1838. The note was printed from steel plates engraved by Kirkwood & Son of Edinburgh.

The note, numbered 195/182, is made payable to Walter Miller and is signed by H Lindsay and I Blair.

Founded in 1787, the Perth Banking Company was contracted to trade for 21 years. It then had to pass into voluntary liquidation and a new bank was formed, using identical establishment procedures. In 1857 the bank merged with the Union Bank of Scotland.
