Which pound note is no longer valid?

The paper £5 and £10 notes, which featured the portraits of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother and Sir Winston Churchill, are no longer valid. The last of these notes were printed by the Bank of England in the early 2000s and became officially discontinued on May 5th, 2018.

Since then, only the plastic £5 and £10 notes featuring the portraits of the Queen Elizabeth II and the naturalist, Charles Darwin, are accepted as legal tender. The old £5 and £10 notes are still accepted by the Bank of England as a form of payment.

Which 10 pound notes are valuable?

Ten pound notes from before 1971 are valuable because they are no longer in circulation and therefore considered collectible. Generally, a higher condition of the note increases the value. More specifically, notes in EF (extremely fine) to UNC (uncirculated) condition will have the highest value.

Notes with a serial number beginning with the letter ‘A’ are valuable irrespective of the note’s condition.

Examples of more valuable ten pound notes include those featuring the portrait of English Author, Charles Dickens which are from the A510 series and can sell anywhere from £400 to upwards of £2,000. Another example is the A/6 1938 Pre-war ten pound note featuring King George VI which can sell for £500 or more depending on condition.

Notes featuring King Edward VII and William Forbes are also quite valuable.

It is also important to note that counterfeits of collectible pre-1971 ten pound notes do exist and therefore it is important to buy from reputable sellers who are experienced with Bank of England notes.

Are any of the new 10 pound notes valuable?

The new £10 notes have only been in circulation since 2017, with the Jane Austen £10 note being launched on 18 September 2017. As such, they are not yet valuable in the sense that certain editions or variations can be sold for more than face value.

However, there is some speculation that certain Collectors’ Editions and Limited Editions might eventually become valuable in the future, due to significant interest in them.

The new £10 features a number of security features, such as a hologram, micro-lettering, watermark, motion thread, concealed number, and ultraviolets features. These features make it harder to counterfeit, so it is possible that rare editions of the new £10 will be sought by collectors in the future.

Additionally, it may be possible to have your new £10 note enhanced or ‘graded’ by the Bank of England, who have the Royal Mail’s Valuable Letter Service. Through this, you can have your £10 – or any other Bank of England note – autographed, held, or released on the day of issue.

This could add to the value of your £10 note.

In summary, while the new £10 notes are not yet ‘valuable’ in the sense of being able to be sold for more than face value, it is possible that certain editions or variations could become more valuable in the future – particularly if they are enhanced, autographed or graded by the Bank of England.
