Harry Kane £5 Notes Released in Britain…and they’re worth £50,000

New £5 notes featuring the face of Harry Kane have been planted in various parts of Britain and they could be worth a fortune to whoever manages to net one.

Only six notes – which commemorate England striker Kane finishing top scorer at this summer’s World Cup in Russia – have been released.

The notes feature 5mm portraits of the Tottenham Hotspur star – and the designs are insured for a whopping £50,000.

Each of the six notes carries the engraving ‘World Cup Golden Boot Winner 2018’ alongside an image of the Tottenham Hotspurs striker.

So far, one has been given to Kane himself, while another has been presented to the Football Association.

Micro-engraver Graham Short, who etched the portraits, said he had the privilege of spending one of the rare notes.

He said: “I was watching the World Cup, as many people were, and it looked like Harry Kane would get the Golden Boot and when he did I started thinking it would be great to mark that by putting his portrait on a £5 note and got to work.

“I spent the first Harry Kane note in Meriden, which is the centre of England, only a few miles from the M40 and M42, and so that note could travel in any direction.

“I spent one in Edinburgh near the coffee shop where JK Rowling first went as a young mum and started writing about Harry Potter. I just liked the magical feeling of that.”

It’s not a bad consolation for the 25-year-old striker after England fell short of winning a second World Cup in Russia.
