If The UK votes "in" to Europe, then yes, they would become "rare" as we would lose the pound I am assuming ?

I'm sure we would still retain GBP if the vote ends with "in"

I've kept this white fiver from my grandad my wallet for when Newcastle Utd win some silver wear for the St James Park trophy cabinet

When he got it, it would have filled the bar a round of drinks or a magnum of champagne

Today it will get me a pint and bag of nuts if I'm lucky

By the time they win something, it will probaly not buyer the mixer for a measure of spirit

not really a fan of polymer notes,so many of them will be printed.i would only go for the 1st prefix or low number/high number.

everyone will be putting these away.

very timely, releasing a note with Churchill on, with the referendum on the way.

Could be worth holding onto a few crisp new notes made of paper once the polymer notes take over.

In years to come the original notes might become collectible especially if in pristine condition ?

You may be correct in the short term, but very wrong in the long term. 'Remain' means full steam ahead to full integration within the Eurozone and a Federal EU.

On the bright side increasing unrest within the EU might kill it before we adopt the Euro.

Back on topic , I love the idea of a Churchill £5, and if it is anything like the Australian money, then it is a long overdue development. Doesn't this move to more durable fiat hint that cash isn't going to disappear anytime soon?

Currently stacking 1/4 oz (22ct) and Sovs.

Alternatively it's a symbol that allows the BOE to say they were committed to the future of paper money but due to circumstances that nobody could have foreseen plans had to change.

I watched Mark Carnage being interviewed about the new plastic notes at Blenheim Palace this evening. I couldn't believe my ears when the interviewer asked why they were bothering with new notes when surely the future was cashless as everyone was using the new electronic payment methods. He was positively drooling about it - moron!
