The Royal Bank of Scotland has introduced a commemorative banknote honoring the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Nice
design - I like it.
A new £10 note to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee has been launched by Royal Bank of Scotland.
The commemorative note features images of the Queen through the years, from the official palace photo taken of
her in the 1940s to a picture of the Queen at Epsom Racecourse in 2008.
The design is the third in RBS' royal series, which also includes a £20 note for The Queen Mother's 100th
birthday in 2000 and a £5 note for the Queen's Golden Jubilee in 2002. It celebrates the Queen's
connections with Scotland and the bank, which was the first to include a portrait of the British monarch in
1727. The Bank of England began to feature the monarch in 1960.
The new Diamond Jubilee note is legal tender and will available from Scottish RBS branches or on order. 2 million
of the commemorative notes have been put into circulation, a week before celebrations for the jubilee begin.
