BANK OF ENGLAND READIES POLYMER £50

The Bank of England has awarded the substrate contract for the coming polymer 50 to CCL Secure and De La Rue.

The new, eight-year contracts with the two companies also includes additional polymer for future production of the existing 5 and 10 notes, which have been on polymer stock since 2016 and 2017 respectively.

When the 50 becomes polymer it will complete the Bank's move from traditional cotton bankmote paper to polymer across all note denominations.
