Banknote checking for retailers – Scottish polymer notes

New Scottish polymer notes are now in circulation for £5, £10, £20 and £50. With the Christmas shopping period underway, please take a moment to read this safety guidance for checking new Scotting banknotes, and to share with staff so they become familiar. Counterfeit notes are always circling, so it is important for retailers handling cash to know what to look out for.
Paper £20 and £50 notes will be withdrawn from England and Scotland in 30 September 2022.
