Withdrawal of Dickens £10 Note

The Bank of England today announces that it is to withdraw from circulation the older style £10 notes featuring a portrait of Charles Dickens.
Published on 29 April 2003

Holders of these notes may continue to use them, but after the 31 July 2003 they will no longer be legal tender. This means that they will not be widely accepted in retail outlets after this date. Most banks, building societies, and Post Offices will continue to accept the Dickens £10 notesfor several months after the end of July. However, this will be at the discretion of the individual institution. As with all old Bank of England notes, the Dickens £10 notes will remain payable forever at the Bank of England.
