After 1.03.2018 they need to be changed at a bank.

Darn, oh well, will have to do it at a bank when we're over in the spring. That's assuming I have some, haven't looked since the last trip back in September.

They always retain their value, the Bank of Englands promise has always been honoured

Bar stewards. On my trip to the U.K. last week Everyone refused my 14 old pound coins. EasyJet, boots, M&S, Costa, etc. Each and every one of the above had a U.K. bank account that they could have deposited them.

I ended up dropping them into a poppy appeal collection. Didnít take a poppy either.

Now the £10 note. I wonder how many millions of non-UK residents will get shafted by this. Money is money, it should never expire.

Bar stewards.

So why did you not take them to a bank to exchange? They stopped being legal tender in mid-October so of course none of the companies would take them.

What she said. I think the mistake was yours. It happens in countries all over the place. What's the big deal?

Re: UK; old £10 notes not legal after 1. March 2018

Don’t get confused with “legal” and “legal tender”.

The old £10 ceases to be legal tender next March, meaning that your local shop, neighbour, bank, post office, etc. might refuse them,or might still happily accept them. But either way, they are still worth £10 and can be redeemed at the Bank of England.

In this context, you cannot be sued for non-payment of a debt if you offer (sufficient) legal tender. But both parties can agree any form of payment, including withdrawn currency.

However, even normal current cash can cease to be legal tender under some circumstances. For example 1p coins are legal tender only up to 20p and there are similar limits on other coins valued below £1.

This £10 note I just made with loo roll and a crayon would be illegal if I tried to spend it though.
