Bank of England launches interactive banknote app
The Bank of England (BoE) has launched an interactive guide to banknotes, as part of its ongoing commitment to building awareness of the security features the public should look for in BoE banknotes.
The free app for both Apple iOS & Google Android devices aims to make the BoE educational material more accessible to retailers, businesses and members of the public.
Aimed at people who frequently use banknotes, in addition to retailers/businesses and the police, it offers detailed images of all current BoE banknotes together and allows users to learn about the security features of each note - including the soon to be withdrawn Houblon £50.
Furthermore, the app offers general advice, including what to do if you think you have come into receipt of a counterfeit banknote - more details are available on the Bank of England website.
