David Duffy, chief executive of Clydesdale Bank, expressed his excitement on the introduction of this new member to the polymer series, after the huge success of £5 polymer note which was presented last September. He also mentioned that this long lasting note is one of the most innovative economic improvements and it has helped a lot in reducing counterfeits. The new note to this series is expected to add to the benefits.
