New Polymer Notes for Northern Ireland

Post by DOC » 06 Nov 2018 21:11

It has just been announced that Bank of Ireland and Danske Bank will introduce polymer notes in Northern Ireland in the near future. Bank of Ireland plan to issue £5 and £10 notes in 2019 and a £20 note in 2020 while Danske Bank will issue a £10 note in 2019. Specimen images of the Bank of Ireland £5 and Danske £10 notes are attached.

I was expecting them to change at some point in time. That basically leaves First Trust as the odd one out with a Banknote design thats essentially unchanged since 1979.

I like the design of those Ulster Bank notes and in vertical format too. It will be interesting to see if the First Trust Bank follows the trend. I just spotted an image of the new Bank of Ireland £10 to add to the line up.

Both banks have essentially retained the reverse design in use on their current issues.
