£10 notes

The change from the old £10 notes has been mentioned before but remember.........tomorrow is the last day before many shops will refuse to take them.

I guess the bigger stores will still take them for some time but they are not legally obliged to do so.

There is no time limit in respect of banks accepting them.......as far as I know

Re: £10 notes

I haven't seen a paper tenner for a few months now, it's all been the plastic ones, certainly haven't got any stashed away, can't afford to save money like that...Grin

Re: £10 notes

Eh?, does that mean I can't spend my white fivers either? Government has got a lot to answer for. As for them paper tenners, not seen one for 2 or 3 month now. I suppose it won't be long before the plastic twenty's are out.

Don't worry if you have old tenners - I'll offer 30p in the pound for them. A great offer ;-)

Re: £10 notes

But, strangely enough, there are no plans for £50 to be printed on plastic.

Rather defeats the argument that paper notes are too easy to forge.

Re: £10 notes

I'm surprised they haven't phased out the £50, given no one likes accepting them...

Re: £10 notes

I'm surprised the £50 note hasn't become more common given how expensive things are getting... Crazy2

Re: £10 notes

At the other end of the money tree plantation, does anyone get an impression that 1 & 2p. coins in circulation are fewer? We used to put them aside for things like carnivals, and the box was full with them and the lower value silver coins.

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Re: £10 notes

I had a couple of £50 notes and no-one would accept them, shops, supermarkets or pub/restaurants.

I ended up taking them to my local bank and paying them into my account.

Re: £10 notes

You should have offered an alternative payment - in the form of 1p coins. Cheesy

Re: £10 notes

Cash dispensers don't usually issue fivers so there are not as many in circulation as there used to be.  For some reason supermarkets won't put 2p, 10p, 50p, and £2 coins in their self-service tills, and when these tills have those coins they are programmed to get rid of them as soon as possible.  For example I got ten 2p coins and six 5p coins when I was due 50p in change recently.  On the other hand when 4p is required in change I get four 1p coins.

Re: £10 notes

@twocvbloke

Are they plastic though or are they as we are told, polymer - and what's the difference anyway?

I can understand that with all the security concerns they are better able to make them harder to forge, but with the drift away from plastics have those that decide such things go this one wrong?

@Pete11

I'm still trying to shift that mail bag full of tenners I buried in haste back in 1963.
