National Savings Certificates Book

This image shows a National Savings Certificate book. Founded in 1881 as the Post Office Savings bank and supported by the Government, the initiative had a dual purpose. Set up to encourage British people to save more, invested funds could then be borrowed by the Chancellor to be put towards public funding.



In 1916, the scheme was expanded to increase funds for the war effort and by 1956, premium bonds had been introduced. The initiative has changed name over the years and is in existence today as National Savings & Investments, still supported by the Government.
