The Bank of England has announced that the paper £10 note featuring Charles Darwin will be withdrawn from circulation on Thursday 1 March 2018.
After this date, businesses and the public no longer have to accept the Darwin note and the new polymer note featuring Pride and Prejudice author Jane Austen will be the only £10 note with legal tender status.
Paper £10 notes can however be exchanged at the Bank of England in person or by post.
