NEW FIVER HITS THE STREETS
October 17 2016.


The new plastic £5 note is now in circulation.


The new fiver is printed on polymer - a thin and flexible plastic material. It’s around 15 per cent smaller than the paper £5 note and features Winston Churchill.

The paper £5 note will be withdrawn from circulation on the 5th of May 2017.

If your business handles cash, it's important that you and those working in your business understand how to recognise and authenticate the new bank notes.
