Ulster Bank Head of NI, Richard Donnan, and the bank’s Head of Retail Banking, Terry Robb, remind consumers that the bank’s new ‘vertical’ notes come into circulation next week.

  • New polymer designs last 2.5 times as long as traditional cotton notes
  • Portrait design and advanced security features make it easier for customers to protect themselves from becoming victim of fraud.

Retailers and members of the public in Northern Ireland are being reminded about the biggest shake-up to the cash in their wallet in over 40 years.

As revealed last year, Ulster Bank is switching production of its £5 and £10 notes to more secure and durable polymer material, as well as turning the notes to a vertical orientation.
