Only 300,000 printed due to the expected shortage of coinage during the Second World War; the notes were printed by Bradbury Wilkinson and delivered to Bermuda in May 1939. However, the coinage shortage never materialised and the notes were destroyed; it is consequently believed that only about eleven sets survived.
