Also on Tuesday, the Bank of England said that towards the end of the year, it will release pictures of new bank notes bearing a photograph of the monarch.
The central bank said that old coins and bank notes having the image of Queen Elizabeth II would only be replaced when they get worn out, thus initially, money with the portraits of both monarchs will circulate simultaneously.
By mid-2024, the new notes will be in use, according to a statement from the Bank of England.
Paper banknotes are being replaced by polymer ones that include the royal portraits. The Bank of England has announced that paper £20 and £50 notes would no longer be accepted as legal money after September 30 and advised consumers to use or deposit them before that date.
The paper money will no longer be accepted as payment for goods and services as of October 1; however, many British banks will still accept them as deposits.»After Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral, King Charles III’s new monogram was published«
