Bank of Scotland unveils new £10 polymer note

 

Bank of Scotland unveils its newly-designed £10 polymer note which will come into circulation in the autumn of 2017.

 

 

 

The new note retains the portrait of the Scottish novelist and poet, Sir Walter Scott on the front alongside the image of The Mound, the historic head office of the Bank of Scotland.

All of Bank of Scotland’s notes carry a portrait of Scott, who was a prominent figure in the campaign for Scottish Banks to retain their right to print their own banknotes in 1826.

The Glenfinnan Viaduct remains on reverse of the new note, but now features a steam locomotive hauling a heritage tourist train.

The polymer note, designed by the banknote manufacturer, De La Rue, incorporates the enhanced security features introduced on the polymer £5 note, including the anti-counterfeit “window effect” which will be built into the windows of the image of The Mound, and the “rolling bar” metallic ink which changes color as the note is moved.
