Re: New Polymer Notes for Northern Ireland

A new £50 Ulster Bank polymer note has just been released (15th June 2022). The note celebrates the contribution of women in Northern Ireland to science and industry. Jocelyn Bell Burnell is acknowledged for her pioneering work in the discovery of pulsars and there are images of women in the Life Sciences and millies, women who worked at looms in the region’s linen industry. There are also illustrations of plants and animals native to the region on the front and back of the note.

The first £50 polymer note is dated 1st March 2021 and bears the signature of Group Chief Executive Officer, Alison Rose. The front and back of the issued note is illustrated.

A very nice addition to the new series.
Colouring is similar to that of the Bank of England £50.

I have seen two forms of the Ulster Bank £50 polymer note, serving as specimens, one with serial number A000000, the other with A123456. Examples attached.

More variety for the collector to chase!
It looks like the note numbered AA123456 is missing the shiny hologram security device.

Yes, the hologram appears to be missing. We will have to wait for another image to confirm if this is real or an artefact of the imaging process.
