New polymer £5 note featuring Winston Churchill
On 2 June the Bank of England will be unveiling the full details, design and security features of a new polymer £5 note, which will be issued in September this year. More polymer notes will follow with a £10 note featuring Jane Austen in 2017, and a £20 note featuring J.M.W. Turner by 2020.
The switch to polymer will deliver banknotes that are more secure and better quality, and will support confidence in banknotes in the years ahead. For more information on the switch to polymer please visit the Bank of England website.
