When will the new £ 50 note be released? When does the old paper banknote expire?


The Bank of England has unveiled its new £ 50 banknote featuring WWII code breaker Alan Turning.

The new polymer note will be the last in the Bank’s collection to switch from the old paper versions.

It joins the Sir Winston Churchill £ 5, the Jane Austen £ 10 and the JMW Turner £ 20 – meaning all Bank of England banknotes will be polymer.

Like the latest £ 20 note, it features two windows and a two-tone leaf, making it very difficult to counterfeit.

It also features a hologram image, which changes between the words “Fifty” and “Pounds,” when you tilt the note from side to side.
