New Bank of Scotland polymer £20 note featuring Queensferry Crossing enters circulation

Post Thumbnail

Bank of Scotland’s new polymer £20 note featuring The Queensferry Crossing has entered circulation.

The note is similar to the previous paper designs, but adds the new bridge in behind the Forth Bridge illustration on the reverse.

Sir Walter Scott remains on the front of the note, alongside an image of The Mound in Edinburgh.

The Queensferry Crossing is celebrated as well in a limited number of special commemorative notes.

Designed by De La Rue, the commemorative notes will be marked with ‘QF & QC’, representing the Queensferry Crossing exclusive to this design.

The special Queensferry Crossing edition

These are available from Bank of Scotland branches and demand is expected to be high.

Tara Foley, Bank of Scotland managing director, said: “It is important to us that any new bank note we produce proudly represents the values and history of Scotland, and our new Bank of Scotland polymer £20 note is the result of months of careful work.

“We encourage people to keep an eye out for the new design and take a moment to spot some of the new features.”

The notes are slightly smaller than the existing paper versions in circulation, consistent with those issued by other UK banks this year.

The paper notes will be gradually withdrawn, but will continue to be accepted at shops, banks and cash payment machines until legal tender status is withdrawn at a future date.
