The New £20 Note

In the News

Many banks will accept withdrawn notes as deposits from customers. The Post Office may also accept withdrawn notes as a deposit into any bank account you can access at the Post Office.

I still have old fivers, tenners and pound coins...lol

I‘m not sure I like the new notes - doesn’t feel like money. Mind you, I certainly handle less cash these days

I like JMW Turner, so from my perspective he's a good choice to have on the new note. Although, I rarely use cash now, so it may be a while before I get hold of one.

The good news is there will be a six months notice period given to get rid of your paper notes. That's a relief as I struggled with the £10 note changeover and found a stray one, several times for months.

Lol you don’t realise how much cash is stashed around randomly until the moment the royal mint announces a change. I’ve still got old coins and notes, but my bank have said they won’t stop customers from depositing them, so I’m not in a rush to dig everything out just yet

We are still finding old £10 notes at Grandma's house. She has dementia. She hides/puts money all over the place. We've found tenner down the back of the sofa, in drawers, in the wardrobes....

ShellyAnn I can well understand there must be hundreds of people in the same situation that will squirrel money away and not remember it. (it's a relief that the banks are easy going with them still)

Hi, I've found that I've handed over two new notes instead of one on quite a few occasions. Will have to be more careful with £20 for sure. It is good that the banks are relaxed about returning the old notes.

My mom told be about this coming out but I didn’t realise it was already in circulation!

When I was younger I threw away £120 of old style paper twenty pound notes as I didn‘t realise the bank would change them 🤦🏼‍♀️

Like how they're turning money into art, literally. Euro notes on the other hand feel like Monopoly money.
