The Sales column gives the purchase value of Prize Bonds in each of the past three years. This is equivalent to the monetary amounts invested in Prize Bonds.

The Prize Money column is the prize money that has been paid out in each of these years to Prize Bond customers. This is generated by the interest rate applied to the outstanding fund each year.

The Number of Prizes column shows the number of prizes awarded in each year.
