Print the first paper currency in longitudinal design in Britain
Ulster Bank is the first Irish bank to put banknotes in linear design, for the first time as in Britain.
The bank began printing longitudinal notes of £ 5 and £ 10, which will begin trading in Northern Ireland next year.
The four Northern Irish banks have printed their notes according to a tradition that has been going on since the 19th century.
Ulster Bank, a subsidiary of the Royal Bank of Scotland, has offered long-term banknotes that will replace current notes. The two critical papers show some aspects of nature from birds, flowers and butterflies.
The bank has announced that it will follow the Bank of England’s approach to printing banknotes, but has taken a step further. One of the few countries that has printed long-term notes so far is Switzerland and Canada. LINK
