The Bank of Ezio
A few days ago I went to a car boot sale and there were many things for sale such as antiques, clothes and toys. There was a small store that sold video games and the prices weren’t bad but the games on display were ones I had already got, or they didn’t interest me. There was one thing that stood out like a sore thumb, a five pound note. This was no ordinary five pound note however, as it had Ezio Auditore da Firenze printed on it.
You could imagine my face when I saw this, think Jack Sparrow’s confused face from Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End. I didn’t know what to make of this “Assassin’s Creed fiver” but I did know one thing, I needed this. I asked the man who runs the stall how much this Assassin’s Creed money was and he was just as surprised to see it as I was. He said that, he didn’t know where it came from and asked where in the stall I had found it.
The man who ran the stall had no knowledge of it and put it down to two possible things. 1) When he was putting the games on display, that five pound note was in between two games and didn’t realise or 2) somebody had misplaced it. As the Assassin’s Creed fiver wasn’t the stall owner’s he let me have it for nothing even though I found it on his stall which was very nice of him.
This Assassin’s Creed five pound note is one of the weirder gaming items I have collected. I looked at it more closely when I was at home and found out one little thing, an inconsistency.
In the above image it says “Rome, Italy” which makes sense as the five pound note features the Assassin’s Creed II logo and its protagonist Ezio. It also has Ezio Auditore da Firenze listed as the chief cashier. The thing here that stands out is the picture of Altair Ibn-La’Ahad. Why is there a picture of Altair, the protagonist from the first game on this five pound note.
It adds to the mystery of this Assassin’s Creed five pound note. Who or what company created this? When was it made and why was it made? I have yet to find out anything about this. I’ve searched up “Assassin’s Creed fiver“, “Assassin’s Creed money” and “Assassin’s Creed five pound note” and I have found nothing. It’s as if I have got the only one in existence.
If anyone has any knowledge about this mysterious Assassin’s Creed £5 note, please let me know. I desperately want to know more about this. You can let me know in the comments below. You could me an email via the contact form in the “Contact Me” page. You can also let me know on Twitter – @ThatGreenDude95
Any information about this Assassin’s Creed money would be greatly appreciated
Do you require the services of Ezio Auditore? That will cost you a fiver mate.
