Bank of England Prints Polymer Bank Notes
Priory Press is interested in the news that the Bank of England is to reveal the full design of the new £5 note, England’s first polymer note, on 2 June.
The £5 note will feature Winston Churchill with Jane Austen on the £10 note.
A decision on who will feature on the £20 note is expected in the coming weeks. Members of the public have voted for artists “who have helped shape British thought, innovation, leadership, values and society”.
The £5 notes notes will enter circulation in September, the new £10 note a year later and the £20 note by 2020. The paper versions of each will be gradually removed from circulation once their polymer counterparts have been introduced.
Who do you think should be included on the £20?
