The Five Pound Note

Five pound notes were introduced for the first time in 1793. The earliest notes were handwritten on one side only. With the exception of the Restriction Period between 1797 and 1821, these notes could be exchanged in full, or in part, for an equivalent amount of gold when presented at the bank. From 1853 printed notes replaced handwritten notes.
The ability to redeem banknotes for gold ceased in 1931 when Britain stopped using the gold standard. Metal thread was introduced on the five pound note in 1945 as a security feature. The printed black and white notes were replaced from 1957 onward by new, blue, two-sided notes featuring a bust of Britannia on the front and a lion on the back. An image of the monarch appeared on the front for the first time in 1963, Britannia being moved to the back. From 1971 onward a British historical figure was portrayed on the reverse, initially the soldier and statesman the Duke of Wellington, subsequently the railway pioneer George Stephenson, the prison reformer Elizabeth Fry, and, from 2016, Sir Winston Churchill. Notes issued since 1990 are multicoloured, although they are predominantly turquoise-blue. These notes feature for the first time 'windowed' metal thread - this thread appears as a dashed line, yet forms a single line when held up to the light.
The Bank of England’s first polymer £5 note entered circulation in September 2016. Polymer, a thin, flexible plastic, is resistant to dirt and moisture, and lasts around 2.5 times longer than paper. It can better withstand being repeatedly folded into wallets or scrunched up inside pockets and can also survive a spin in the washing machine. A new generation of security features have been introduced, making it even harder to counterfeit. The old paper fivers will cease to be legal tender after May 2017.
