Following the introduction of polymer £5 and £10 notes, a new polymer £20 note is being released this year.
On the 20th of February 2020, the new note will enter circulation, gradually replacing the old paper notes as they are banked by retailers and the public.
The Bank of England hasn’t announced an official withdrawal date for the current notes yet, so you will be able to continue spending them as normal until this date is confirmed.
What does the new £20 note look like?
The new £20 note features English landscape painter J.M.W Turner, world-renowned for his oil paintings of the English countryside. In 2005, his painting ‘The Fighting Temeraire’ was voted Britain’s greatest ever painting.
It will be the first note to feature the signature of Sarah John who is the Bank of England’s newest Chief Cashier. The new note has increased security features making it more difficult for fraudsters to make counterfeit copies of. It has also shrunk by 14.87% compared to the current paper version.
