The new £10 note

As part of its efforts to stay one step ahead of the counterfeiters, the Bank of England has replaced the ‘old’ £10 note with a shiny new version. You’ll have until 1 March 2018 to use the old note. The new tenner is longer lasting, more environmentally friendly and harder to forge than its replacement.
