Bank of England reveals last day to use old £10 notes

Old £10 note to disappear next year

The Bank of England warns if you still have any old £10 notes with Charles Darwin, better spend them before 1 March next year, otherwise, it'll transform into the souvenir.

Retailers, banks and other institutions can refuse to accept the old-style notes beyond the deadline, although it will still be possible for shoppers to exchange them for the new £10 note featuring Jane Austen at the Bank of England.

On March 1st, 2018, the United Kingdom will use only a new £10 note, and the old paper notes will no longer be legal tender after that date.

Old notes can still be spent ahead of this date and you can exchange them at the Bank once this point has passed.

The shiny new tenner was unveiled to the public at Winchester Cathedral - where the Austen was buried - back in July.

As at 3 October 2017, 55% of £10 notes in circulation were made of polymer with an estimated 359 million paper £10 notes in circulation.

However the introduction of the new material caused some controversy when it was revealed that the polymer used contained traces of animal fat - or fallow - and were unsuitable for vegetarians.

Here is a video explaining the security measures on the new polymer note.

However the Bank of England made the decision to keep the notes in circulation.
