The new £5 note

Put your wallets on standby, because a shiny new £5 note was launched on the 13th September 2016. Whilst traditionalists might mourn the loss of the existing one to cries of ‘if it ain’t broke why fix it’, the Bank of England periodically replaces bank notes in order to keep one step ahead of the counterfeiters.
