Alan Yeoman Buys First Premium Bond

The first Premium Savings Bonds went on sale on 1 November 1956. Sales across the UK reached £5 million that first day. Harold Macmillan introduced Premium Bonds as a way of encouraging the public to save and at the same time generating government cash. A Premium Bond is a sort of savings account but the interest earned is put into a prize draw. Premium Bonds were the lottery of their day, with celebrities announcing the top prizes.
