New notes for Northern Ireland

New £10 and £5 notes with a vertical design and in the polymer format will be issued in Northern Ireland on 27 February.

The Bank of Ireland and Ulster Bank will introduce both valuations, but Danske Bank will issue only £10 notes.

Unlike Bank of England notes, the existing £10 and £5 notes will always be legal currency, so although they will start to be withdrawn, they still can be used in the future. Meanwhile, the introduction of a new Bank of England £20 note has now been put back to the first half of 2020. A new polymer £50 note is not expected to appear until 2023.
