Bank Note Trade Agreement
Contaminated banknotes are also decommissioned and removed from circulation, in particular to prevent the spread of disease. A Canadian government report shows that the shift towards the use of these revenues as a means of payment took place in the mid-17th century, when the price revolution, when relatively rapid gold inflation, led to a reassessment of the functioning of money. London goldsmiths began distributing receipts as payable to the document holder and not to the original depositor. This meant that the note could be used as a currency based on the security of the goldsmith, not the holder of the goldsmith`s account.  Bankers have also begun to issue a note value higher than the total value of their physical reserves in the form of credits, assuming that they would not have to exchange all the notes issued at the same time. This decisive move changed the simple change of sola in an agency for the expansion of the monetary supply itself. As these receipts were increasingly used in the money flow system, depositors began to request multiple receipts in small fixed denominations to be used as money. Receipts soon became a written order to pay the amount to the person in possession of the note. These tickets are credited as the first modern banknotes.   Originally, the note was merely a promise to the bearer of being able to honour it for its value in Specie, but in 1833, the second, in a series of bank cards, found that the notes were to be considered to be legal tender in peacetime.  The first short-lived attempt to issue central banknotes was made in 1661 by the Bank of Stockholm, a predecessor of the Swedish central bank Sveriges Riksbank.  These replaced the copper plates used instead as a means of payment.  This issuance of banknotes was caused by the particular circumstances of the delivery of coins in Sweden.
Imports of cheap foreign copper had forced the crown to constantly increase the copper coin to obtain its value relative to silver. The high weight of the new coins encouraged merchants to deposit them against receipts. These became banknotes when the bank manager decoupled the rate of issue of the bank`s foreign exchange reserves. Three years later, the bank went bankrupt after rapidly increasing the artificial money supply due to the large-scale printing of paper money. A new bank, the Riksens Stunders Bank, was founded in 1668, but did not issue banknotes until the 19th century.  Until the mid-19th century, commercial banks were able to issue their own notes and notes issued by provincial banks were the common form of currency throughout England, outside London.  The Bank Charter Act of 1844, which created the modern central bank, limited the authorization to issue new banknotes to the Bank of England, which now had exclusive control of the money supply in 1921.
