The Bank of Scotland is following other UK banks and making the changeover from printing their banknotes on paper to printing banknotes on polymer plastic. Here we offer Uncirculated examples of the £20 notes. The front features a portrait of Sir Walter Scott and a view of the façade of the Bank’s headquarters while on the back we find the Forth Road and Railway.
To date the Bank of Scotland has issued just two denominations in polymer- the £5 and the £10. We offer Crisp examples of the £5 note here. It is dated 2016 and features a portrait of author Walter Scott alongside a view of the façade of the Bank Headquarters on the fronts. The reverse references the poet Robert Burns and the Brig O’Doon.
In 2017 Canada celebrated 150 years of the Confederation of Canada 1867-2017. One of the ways it marked this milestone was with the issue of a 10 dollar polymer note which represented all the regions of the country and celebrated the work and lives of 4 prominent Canadians. The portraits of John Macdonald, George-Etienne Cartier, James Gladstone and Agnes Campbell Macphail appear on the front alongside a broad see through security panel. The regions of Canada are represented on the back with a view of Capilano Lake, Twin Sisters Mountain, wheatfields, the Kipana River, the coast of New Brunswick and the Northern Lights above Wood Buffalo Park. An impressive note in Uncirculated.
