New tenners come in today – BBPA reminder!

With new, ten pound polymer bank note will go into circulation today, those with machines that take ten pound notes need to ensure they are updated and staff are aware of the new notes, featuring Jane Austen, says the BBPA.

Current ten pound notes will be gradually withdrawn as they are banked by retailers and businesses. The old note, featuring Charles Darwin, will be withdrawn from circulation in Spring 2018.

Notice will be given at least three months prior to the precise withdrawal date.

Further information on the new tenner is available the Bank of England website at
