About Us


Colin Narbeth founded the International Bank Note Society in 1961 and has been dealing in paper money ever since. His son, Simon Narbeth, joined the firm in 1984 and is now managing director. Colin's daughter Vanessa runs the cigarette card department and his grandson Doug manages the website. Colin is a long time collector of Tibet paper money and has written nearly 20 books on collecting subjects.

Collectors are always welcome at the shop to talk and look at notes. The firm prides itself on a fast service, with most orders being posted out the same day.
