Old £10 Darwin note to be withdrawn by Bank of England

The Bank of England has announced that following the launch of the new Jane Austen £10 note on 14 September 2017, the Bank will withdraw legal tender status of the paper £10 note featuring Charles Darwin, first issued in 2000, at 23:59 hrs (GMT) on Thursday 1 March 2018.

Around 55 per cent of £10 notes in circulation in October 2017 were the new polymer £10 notes. After 1 March 2018, it will still be possible for Charles Darwin notes to be exchanged as Bank of England banknotes retain their value for all time and can be exchanged in person or by post.
