Entering circulation on June 5, the new polymer banknotes will circulate alongside those featuring Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, which will remain legal tender.

While the notes will feature the likes of Jane Austen, Winston Churchill and Alan Turing, The King’s image will appear as a portrait on the front of the banknotes, as well as in the see-through security window.
