In England created the first plastic banknotes.
The Bank of England have shown the first samples of plastic banknotes, which will go into circulation on September 13.
On the banknote of five pounds depicted Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II and former Prime Minister Winston Churchill.
According to Governor of the Bank of England Mark Carney, the new banknotes will be cleaner, safer and stronger.
“Polymer notes will transfer if they drop Bordeaux, strahnet the ashes from the cigars, if they will take a bite out of the bulldog, or even if loads in the washing machine,” said Carney.
After a year in England are planning to release 10 pounds banknote with a picture of writer Jane Austen, and by 2020 – 20 pounds with a portrait of the painter William Turner.
