Houblon £50 Note Withdrawn

Houblon £50 Banknote Front

£50 banknotes carrying the portrait of Sir John Houblon were withdrawn from circulation on 30 April 2014.

Only the £50 banknote featuring Matthew Boulton and James Watt, which was introduced in November 2011, now holds legal tender status.

The Bank of England will continue to exchange Houblon £50 notes, as it would for any other Bank of England note which no longer has legal tender status.
