Six fivers have been altered by artist and micro-engraver Graham Short, who has been travelling across the Home Nations spending them into circulation.
Mr Short was behind a similar series of sought-after Jane Austen fivers, engraved with the writer’s face and released into circulation in 2017.
These were valued at £50,000 when they were first released, sparking frenzied searching of wallets and purses.
Mr Short was inspired to create the new set following England’s World Cup campaign, which saw Kane win the Golden Boot for top scoring as England reached the semi-finals.
“I’ve done six – one for each goal he scored – for Harry himself, the FA and four to be spent as we did with the Jane Austen notes around the UK and Ireland,” he said.
The first note was spent in Meriden, a village between Coventry and Solihull which is roughly in the geographical centre of England.
“It’s only a few miles from the M40 and M42, and so that note could travel in any direction,” Mr Short said.
“Now I’ve just been to Edinburgh and spent one in the Elephant House in Edinburgh, the coffee shop where JK Rowling first went as a young mum and started writing about Harry Potter. I just liked the magical feeling of that.
“The Welsh note, I went to Merthyr Tydfil, the former mining town where my father was born. It’s not a wealthy area and I’m hoping that this note could help to change the life of someone in that area who finds it.”
The Welsh note was spent in an off licence.
