Current notes

Bank of Ireland (UK) plc issues banknotes in denominations of £5, £10, £20, £50 and £100. In February 2019 we issued new polymer £5 and £10 notes which replace the paper notes of the same denomination. The new polymer notes will retain the iconic Bushmills image and are cleaner, more durable and contain additional security features.

There are currently no changes to the paper £20 and £50 banknotes which are also part of the Bushmills series, or to the £100 banknote, which is part of the Queen’s University Belfast series.

Some notes of older series may be in circulation with different dates and signatures. If in doubt, please go to your branch.
