Following their launch on 22 May last year of their new polymer £5 note featuring a portrait of Sir William Arrol and the Forth Bridge, the Clydesdale bank have now released the note into circulation. On 26th March the Clydesdale bank released the note, the first British polymer banknote, to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the opening of the Forth Bridge. The note also features the Titan Crane, another of Sir William Arrol’s great engineering achievements.
