THE new £5 note that has come into
circulation is smaller, tougher and made of polymer, but they might also be
worth a LOT more than £5! Some collectors are paying more than £200 to get their
hands on the Bank of England's first plastic notes. Yes, £500! The first notes
left distribution centres shortly after midnight on 13 September 2016, so much
for the 13th being unlucky! For some it was proving to be a very profitable one.
