Elgar Note Fades as 30 June Deadline Looms

The £20 banknote bearing the portrait of composer Sir Edward Elgar, has less than two weeks left in everyday use.
Published on 17 June 2010

On 8 March the Bank of England announced the note's withdrawal from circulation on 30 June 2010. After this date the Elgar note will no longer have 'legal tender' status so will be less likely to be accepted in payment or in change, in retail outlets. The Adam Smith £20, first introduced in 2007, has gradually replaced its Elgar predecessor and continues in circulation.
