This is what new vertical Ulster Bank notes will look like in 2019


This is how the new Ulster Bank five and ten pound notes will look when they enter circulation next year.

The new vertical designs, a first for the UK, were shown off by the bank ahead of their issue in early 2019.

The £5 note features images of Strangford Lough and Brent Geese, while the new £10 note displays Lough Erne, Irish hare and Guelder-rose shrubs.

A king scallop from Strangford Lough also features on the notes, as does an Ulster Glade potato from Co Antrim.

Richard Donnan, Head of Ulster Bank in Northern Ireland, said: “Innovation is at the core of our bank, whether that’s through digital technologies, in our face-to-face services, or these designs.

“The notes will also contain advanced security features that will make the notes much harder to counterfeit – giving customers reassurance that their money is safe and secure.”

The currency will be accepted tender across the UK.
