Golly Corner: Bank It

Photo of the Bank It GollyBANK IT

The Bank It brooch was issued in 1982. It features Golly and the genie in the bottle, Ali Jamja. It was used to promote the use of bottle banks. 2 promotional lids and 20p had to be submitted to Robertson's. "This jar can be recycled – bank it at a bottle bank" were the instructions on the jam jar lid.

The genuine Robertson's Bank It badge has nothing on the reverse. Beware: a known fake of the badge has also been produced which bears the backstamp Replica 2003.
