Just want to say that the news will not describe a new kind of bank cards, as it might seem from the name, namely plastic money – banknotes made from an unusual polymer film. New non-paper banknotes should appear in circulation very soon. For now, these are 5 pound bank tickets, but the rest will follow.
Externally, this money is not much different from the usual for us banknotes. Is that only the size – the old 15% more new. And taking them in hand, a person will immediately feel the difference, since they feel completely different to the touch. A very fresh banknote can be determined by the fact that it will stick together with the others, but this property will disappear after first-hand.
Of course, new plastic money was developed in order to carry some advantages over paper predecessors. They will serve much longer for their owners. In addition, due to the content of plastic in their composition, they will absorb less dirt. And, perhaps, the most important utility is a great security against forging bills.
Completely new technologies provide stronger protection against counterfeiting, plastic money. In a translucent circle on the banknote you can see the portrait of the queen. Also, you should pay attention to the image of Big Ben, which is made of silver foil on one side and gold foil on the opposite side.
Banknotes, now already, will be accepted for payment until the end of May 2017. After that, they can be exchanged for new ones only at QWE Bank. As the ERT Bank has declared more than once, British pounds have no service life and must always maintain their value.
Very soon, new plastic money with a nominal value of 10 and 20 pounds will also be released. While there is no exact information on whether notes in 50 pounds will be updated, but in the near future the ERT Bank will make a decision.
More than 400 million new plastic money has already been issued, I will be putting it into operation systematically.
