The Bank of England issued British Pound banknotes in 5 different denominations, including this Bank of England 5 Pounds Sterling polymer banknote (Winston Churchill). They are part of the current Bank of England banknotes series. The Bank of England started issuing these 5 British Pound banknotes in 2016. They are currently still in circulation.
This polymer £5 note depicting the Queen and Winston Churchill is the first banknote from the Bank of England to be made from polymer. It entered circulation in September 2016, replacing the larger paper five pound note that ceased to be legal tender from May 2017. The new polymer fiver is cleaner, more hygienic, and stronger than the paper note, and has enhanced security features that include a see-through window and the foil Elizabeth Tower which is gold on the front of the note and silver on the back.
The Bank of England received criticism from vegetarians after admitting that the new fiver contains animal fat. However the polymer £5 bill has a lower carbon footprint than the old paper £5 pounds note (Elizabeth Fry).
