On 18 July the Bank of England unveilled the new polymer £10 note featuring the renowned author Jane Austen. The date coincides with the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death and takes place at Winchester Cathedral, where she is buried.
From 18 July, you can order our updated banknote training materials. The new note will be issued in September and retailers and businesses are encouraged to use the time before then to share the new materials with staff and train them on the new security features.
If you have included Bank Of England online resources on your own internal website for staff training, please update these to ensure that you are using the latest versions.
Get your business ready for the new £10
Bank of England will be hosting webinars to help retailers and businesses prepare for the launch as staff who handle cash will need to be able to recognise and authenticate the new notes.
These short sessions will run through the new security features and provide an opportunity to ask any questions that you may have.
