During the Second World War, the Bank of England felt the need to protect its currency from counterfeiters. It decided to change the colours of the £1 and 10 shilling notes for the duration of the war and add a revolutionary (at the time) inner metal security thread. The £1 changed from Green to Blue Pink and the 10 shillings from Red Brown to Mauve.
