Published on 21 February 2007

Announcing the date, Andrew Bailey, the Bank’s Executive Director − Banking Services and Chief Cashier, said: “The introduction of the Adam Smith £20 from 13 March will be a major undertaking for us as the £20 denomination is by far the most common note in circulation. This means that the proportion of Adam Smith £20s will gradually increase over time. The note’s enhanced security features will play a key role in our continuing fight to prevent counterfeiting. Maintaining public confidence in our banknotes is paramount.”
