New £50 Note: Bank Of England Reveals Bill To Launch On November 2 | Business | Sky News
A new £50 note is being issued on November 2 this year, with a range of new security features designed to outwit crooks.
At first, the new note will be accepted alongside the current £50 banknote, which came out in 1994 and features Sir John Houblon, the first Governor of the Bank of England.
In due course that note will be withdrawn and only the new one accepted.
Strange Random Banknote Quote:
“In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below. “
