Next in line to join the ranks of plastic money is the £20 note, set to be introduced in February.

But with a new note on the way, the old note will be on the way out - this is everything you need to know about the new plastic £20 note and when its paper counterpart will become obsolete.

When will it be released?

The note is due to be released on 20 February 2020.

The UK is joining the list of 30 other countries who already use plastic banknotes, including the likes of Australia, Singapore and New Zealand.

The polymer notes are thought to have a lifespan of

double their paper counterpart, and as well as being less likely to tear, they only begin melting at 120C and have also been designed not to be damaged by dirt or moisture.

Samsung might be working on its biggest Android update release ever

  Samsung might be working on its biggest Android update release ever Samsung isn’t known for delivering fast Android updates to its devices, and it usually takes more time for the non-flagship models to get upgraded. The latest Galaxy S and Note models are usually the first devices to get Google’s newest Android flavor, after several months of beta tests. We thought the same thing would happen this year with the Galaxy S10 and Note 10. Samsung kicked off the Android 10 beta program a few weeks ago, earlier than expected, with the final update supposed to hit stores at some point in early 2020.

JMW Turner may be a safe choice for new £ 20 note – but it 's deserved. Turner was born in 1775 in London, the son of a barber, and he entered the Royal Academy Schools at the age of 14.

When will the old notes become obsolete?

Much like the introduction of the plastic £5 and £10 notes, bringing the new £20 note into circulation will be a phased process.

You’ll still be able to use the old paper £20 note until it’s withdrawn from circulation - you’ll be given six months’ notice of this date, so nothing will be changing overnight.

If you find yourself in possession of a paper note that’s no longer accepted, you’ll always be able to exchange your paper notes for a new plastic note at a bank.

Security features

Talking to Which?, Sarah John, chief cashier of the Bank of England, said that the new £20 note will be “the most secure banknote yet”.

The design

The paper version of the £20 note, which was issued in 2007, bore a design in honour of economist Adam Smith.

With the paper £20 note being replaced by its plastic counterpart, so will its design.

Featured on the new note is a self portrait of Joseph Mallord William Turner, an 18th and 19th century British artist, well known for his landscape and marine paintings. The self portrait was painted circa 1799 and is currently on display at Tate Britain.

Next to his portrait will be an image of the HMS Temeraire, a ship from one of Turner’s most famous works. The ship played an important role in Nelson’s victory at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.

His signature will also be featured. According to the Bank of England, the signature on the note is taken from his will, “in which he left many of his paintings to the nation”.

Underneath Turner’s signature is the quote, “Light is therefore colour.” This quote is from a lecture Turner gave in 1818 and is in reference to his use of light, shade, colour and tone in his work.
