Making the new fiver

Online Video




The Bank of England released this video on the production of their new £5 note, the first note that is printed on polymer. In the past the Bank of England has released videos upon request, but this is the first video that the Bank of England has released themselves showcasing the printing process for one of their notes. The note has plenty of security features too, ranging from a see through window, color changing parts, holographic images a gold/silver foil image of the Elizabeth tower, to text that only shows under UV lighting and more! The note features Winston Churchill on the back who will be replacing Elizabeth Fry as the face of the note.
