Please take note -
This new family of polymer banknotes for the Royal Bank of Scotland have been designed collaboratively by O Street, Graven Images, Timorous Beasties and Stuco, and led by design consultancy Nile.
The design process engaged more than 1000 members of the public to choose a concept, settling for more ordinary aspects of Scottish identity such as otters, midges and mackerel instead of the more classic interpretations of Scottish culture, such as castles or tartan.
The set will feature £5 notes (due for launch late-2016) and £10 notes (due for launch 12 months later).
