A brief discussion on treasury bills in international markets is given below:

Primary Market

T-bills are important money market instruments in the US. In US, the minimum denomination of T-bills is $10,000 and thereafter in multiples of $5,000.

They are debt obligations of the US government and constitute almost 20% of the marketable debt of the country.

in UK, the treasury bills are called gilts and they are issued in the market by the government through the debt Management Office. The gilts are marketable and fall into three types viz., conventional, index-linked and rump stocks. The bank of England holds the gilts on its behalf and on behalf of its clients. The bank also acts as a registrar for gilts and started postal buying and selling of the securities
in 1998.
