Please be aware that there are counterfeit new 20 pound notes in circulation. I got one given to me and they are very good. The way to spot them is,
1, If you look closely at the holagram it doesnt change from the pound sign to the number 20 when you tilt it on the 2nd & 4th holagram image.
2, On a real note the writing that says BANK OF ENGLAND is raised if you feel it with your finger and on a fake one it feels smooth.
3, If you put a fake note up to the light the Queens head watermark that is on the left side doesnt resemble the queens head at all.
4, The silver foil line is fake because if you rip where its supposed to be it will rip straight through where on a real one it doesnt rip through the foil line.
5, Finally the paper feels different to a real note and is slightly yellower.
It is easy to be given one if you dont know what to look for so hopefully this guide will put you on your guard because with them being new design notes its easy to be conned as most people will assume that they are too new to be counterfeited.
