A web store run by Shibu Paul - IBNS Life Member 208.
I have been collecting for 25+ years and love this wonderful hobby. I am an avid collector and started collecting in 1994 when i was in school.
My dad gave me 2-3 banknotes which he had from his travels. From this day my love affair started and it has never stopped. I used all my pocket money to acquire small value notes.I loved the picteresque views and the story behind each banknotes.
Today I am happy and fortuante to have seen the world through eyes of banknotes and have accumulated a good quantity of banknotes.
I started my web and ebay store to aide my ever increasing collection. In our store we offer a wide range of modern issues at very affordable prices. We specialise in new issues,Polymer banknotes,Islamic banknotes,Queen Elizabeth II issues etc. Our aim is to obtain banknotes from our wide network of contacts and dealers to offer to collectors community at reasonable prices.
My wife Ashley Alexander kindly helps we with my small business. I would never have been able to start and run this business without her help with business and at home.
My latest little helpers are my 13 year old Ryan and 8 year old Shon . They help me with some packing and asks numerous questions about banknotes. Hope they keep up the legacy.
