Ankh-Morpork Banknotes

One Dollar Note Five Dollar Note Ten Dollar Note Twenty Dollar Note Hundred Dollar Note

As all Sto Plains residents must by now be aware, the Ankh-Morpork Dollar is being phased out in favour of a new, cross-boundary currency unit, the Monetary Unit of the Circle Sea (M.U.C.S.). However, the Ankh-Morpork Mint is pleased to offer for a limited period, whilst reserves last, the opportunity to purchase a set of pristine Ankh-Morpork Dollar notes.

As seen at the gaming tables of the 1998 Discworld Convention, one set comprises ten notes, two each of the 1-Dollar, 5-Dollar, 10-Dollar, 20-Dollar and 100-Dollar notes. These special edition notes come complete with a framing border and are available for the special price of just £4.95 per set. Individual notes are available for £1.25p each (set of 2 notes).

Troll Birthday Card

Troll card

The Discworld Convention 1998 is pleased to offer a unique piece of work from the skilled hand of Stephen Player. Created in full colour with a gloss finish, these oversized A5 postcards feature the picture shown here and have a blank back. The troll is carrying a rock cake, complete with candles and snails! The cards each come with a white envelope for posting.

Given the unique nature of these collectable cards, only 1000 of which will ever be produced, they are being offered for sale at the special rate of £2.99 each, or you can purchase five for just £10.00 - a massive saving of £4.95.


By special arrangement, the Discworld Convention (1998) Ltd is proud to offer, for a limited period while stocks last, a unique opportunity to purchase some important Discworld historical memorabilia.

We are delighted to be able to offer these items to all Discworld fans keen to own the complete Discworld Collection.

Featuring Paul Kidby's excellent Troll's Head design, the official Convention T-shirt is a fine piece of apparel. Available in large and extra large, the shirts are black with a full colour design. The shirts are available at the price of £14.99 each.

The 1998 Discworld Convention Programme Book

One of the finest fan publications ever produced, the Convention's 1998 Programme Book has 46 pages of Discworld articles, including 16 in full colour. You will find the first printing outside the Western Daily Press of Terry's short story 'The Megabyte Drive to Believe in Santa Claus', a guide for collectors of Discworld books, and a step by step account of Paul Kidby's work on the cover of the 1999 Watch Diary. Only a few of these books remain, and one can be yours for just £2.50.

The Soul Cake Duck

On Discworld, figments of the imagination have a nasty habit of turning up on the doorstep and demanding compensation. Soul Cake Tuesday, the first day of the duck hunting season, has its very own victim, the Soul Cake Duck.

Captured in acrylics for the first time by Graham Higgins, the Soul Cake Duck is shown in its full glory in this limited edition signed and numbered print. The 100 prints are priced at £14.99 each. Specific numbers may be available - please indicate your preference on the order form provided.

The poster can be trimmed and framed to make a striking picture - the high quality printing of the poster picks out all the details of the artwork. One of these posters can be yours for just £4.50, so don't miss this exclusive opportunity.

The Discworld Chronicle

The magazine of the 1998 Discworld Convention was The Discworld Chronicle, and very popular with the fans it was, too. It was the only high-quality, regular, colour Discworld magazine around at the time, and included exclusive interviews, puzzles, reviews and analysis of the books, and much more. All four issues featured wonderful cover artwork by the Discworld artists:

This magazine is no longer being produced, but we now offer you the chance to buy the back issues, and own a piece of Discworld history. Each issue costs just £1.50.
