Paper £10 notes will cease to be legal tender after 1 March 2018

14 November 2017

Press release

​Following the successful launch of the new Jane Austen £10 note on 14 September 2017, we will withdraw legal tender status of the paper £10 note featuring Charles Darwin at 23:59 hrs (GMT) on Thursday 1 March. The public can continue to use the notes as normal. Most paper £10 notes will be automatically removed from circulation. After 1 March 2018, it will still be possible for Charles Darwin notes to be exchanged at the Bank of England.
