Security features to protect you from new £20 counterfeit banknotes

With the recent issue of the new polymer £20 banknotes, The Post Office (2020) have shared a number of security features to help customers identify counterfeit notes. We’ve listed the top two below:


1. Hologram image change

Tilt the note from side to side. Check the words change between ‘Twenty’ and ‘Pounds’.


2. See-through windows

Look at the metallic image over the main window. Check the foil is blue and gold on the front of the note and silver on the back.


Look for a second, smaller window in the bottom corner of the note.

The Bank of England provides more information on security features to keep an eye out for. Visit their dedicated webpage on the new £20 note
