Moving to Polymer Banknotes

The next Bank of England £5, £10 and £20 banknotes will be printed on polymer.

The new fiver will be issued in September 2016.  Around three months before, the full details of the design and security features will be available and a range of training materials for retailers and businesses will be released.

The £10 note will be issued in 2017 and the £20 note by 2020.

Polymer banknotes are cleaner, more secure, and more durable than paper banknotes. They will provide enhanced counterfeit resilience, and increase the quality of banknotes in circulation.
