Fake £5 Polymer Bank Notes

Over the next few years the United Kingdom be be undergoing something of a cashFake_£5_Polymer_Bank_Notes revolution with its cotton paper bank notes being phased out and being replaced by cleaner, more secure, longer lasting and cheaper polymer bank notes.

The £5 polymer bank note is already here, but it will take untill 2020 for the £10 polymer and the £20 polymer to replace their cotton predecessors.

We have already seen a number of scare stories about the cashiers being confused by the
look and feel of the Polymer £5 note. The new style Polymer bank notes have numerous security features which make them impossible to replicate however, a number of store owners have voiced their concerns about staff accidently taking fake polymer notes by mistake.

Whilst we have our doubts about whether counerfeiters will be able to produce realistic apearing fake Polymer banknotes we do have several fake note checkers designed for helping your staff stop anyone willing to use fake Polymer notes:

Handheld Forged Note Detector – as the new Polymer notes feature a UV viewable hologram number then the UV detectors can be used with the Polymer bank notes. The UV1 is our cheapest forged note checker. The plus sides of this fake note detector are that it is small, portable and will also work with the existing cotton-paper bank notes. The downsides are that it requries batteries and it only looks at one apsect of the note authenticity – the new £5 Polymer note has 11 individual security features.

Desktop Forged Note Detector – as the new Polymer notes feature a UV viewable hologram number then the UV detectors can be used with the Polymer bank notes. This counter top version of our UV fake note checkers runs off mains power and requires reaplcement UV bulbs, just like the device above it is only looking at one aspect of the £5 Polymer note 11-fold security features.

LD7 Fake Polymer Note Checker – designed in conjuction with the manufacturers of the new Polymer bank notes and exclusive to Shopstuff this is the only device that will verify with 100% accuracy the authenticity of the Polymer bank note in question. The LD7 analyses the substrate material within the Polymer notes, which is impossible to forge, and tells the cashier within a fraction of a second whether the note is genuine or fake. The LD7 is supplied with a micro sd charger and requires no replacement parts. If you are concerned about the authenticity of £5 Polmer, £10 Polymer or £20 Polymer bank notes that then LD7 is the device for your store.

Polymer Bank Notes

Over the next few years the United Kingdom be be undergoing something of a cash
Polymer_Bank_Notes revolution with its cotton paper bank notes being phased out and being replaced by cleaner, more secure, longer lasting and cheaper polymer bank notes.

The £5 polymer bank note is already here, but it will take untill 2020 for the £10 polymer and the £20 polymer to replace their cotton predecessors.

The current time line for the release and withdraw of bank note in England is as follows –

New Polymer £5 note issued on 13th September 2016
Old cotton £5 note withdrawn from circulation May 2017

New 12-Sided £1 Coin

The New £1 Coin has now been released (28th March 2017)! The long heralded new coin replaces the round £1 coin which as been in circulation since 1983. The new £1 coin has been introduced primarily to combat the number of counterfeit £1 coins in circulation. According to the Royal Mint approximately one in thirty £1 coins in circulation are counterfeit. The new £1 coin is being billed as the most secure coin in the world – it has a host of features that make it much more difficult, but not impossible, to counterfeit.

How Will The New £1 Coin Affect My Business?New_12-Sided_£1_Coin

All businesses which handle cash will be affected by the new £1 coin. There are two ways this will affect your business and how you count your cash.

Firstly and most obviously, your coin counting equipment will have to accept the new £1 coin.

Secondly, there will be an intrerim period, from 28th March to the 15th October, when we have two types of £1 coins both acceptable as legal tender. After the 15th October the ‘old’ £1 coin will be demonitised and no longer legal tender. Until then businesses will be accepting the two types of £1 coin alongside each other, which may cause a problem with your cash handling equipment, as the two coins have different dimensions and metal content. The new 12 sided £1 coin, at 8.75g is lighter than the round £1 coin. The new £1 coin, at 2.8mm, is thinner than the round £1 coin. The new £1 coin has a diameter of 23.43mm making it fractionally larger than the round £1 coin.

Having to seperate the two types of £1 coin in order to count them does have a benefit in the sense that when making your cash bank deposits you will need to seperate the old and new £1 coins – this is to prevent the old style £1 coins re-entering circulation and reducing the time period for those coins being in the majority. By the end of May the number of old pound coins you encounter on a daily basis should start to reduce as the new £1 coin takes over – although expect a splurge in early October as people rush to spend £1 coins they have found in piggy banks and down the back of old sofas.

What Cash Counters Are Suitable For The New £1 Coin?

Rest assured that we have a range of coin counting machines ready to accept both the old round £1 coin alongside the new £1 coin.
