Welcome to the Giesecke+Devrient Currency Technology GB Ltd website

Worried about the new £1 coin and the new £5 & £10 polymer banknotes ?


The Royal Mint will launch a new £1 coin in 2017. It will be 12 sided and of different alloy content compared to today’s coin. This will require your coin counter, coin sorter, change machine, cash deposit machine to be upgraded to be able to handle it.


The Bank of England will release a new  £5 Polymer substrate banknote  in 2016 and a new £10 polymer substrate banknote in 2017. These new notes will have different dimensions as well as different anti-counterfeit features compared to todays (cotton) paper substrate notes.  This will require any banknote counter, banknote sorter, change machine, cash deposit machine to be upgraded to handle them.

The Bank of England has announced that the £20 will also be re-designed and produced in future on a Polymer substrate.

Most of the Scottish issuing banks are expected to follow the Bank of England plans by releasing (at the same time) their own Polymer version.
