From Thursday 14 September the new polymer £10 note appeared in British wallets and purses.
The new note, featuring author Jane Austen, has a number of new features and is designed to be harder to counterfeit and longer-lasting.
You can continue to use the paper £10 note, featuring Charles Darwin, until it is withdrawn from circulation in Spring 2018. The Bank of England will give at least three months’ notice before the final withdrawal date.
