RBS to bring out 10-pound polymer note

The Royal Bank of Scotland is proposing to issue its first polymer £10 note to the public on 4 October. The new note features images of Scottish mathematician and astronomer Mary Somerville, her hometown of Burntisland in Fife, and two otters. The note would have several new security features that make it difficult for fraudsters to bring out counterfeit ones. The note would also feature braille facility to help the visually impaired.  The bank is also bringing out a polymer £20 note sometime in 2020 with Glasgow philanthropist and entrepreneur Catherine Cranston featured on it. The bank’s chief executive Ross McEwan said that after 30 years, the time had come for RBS to produce a new £10 note and the wanted the public to help influence the design. They helped influence the theme of ‘fabric of nature’ and helped to consider the impact Mary Somerville has had on the understanding of the world in which we live, he added.
