Harry Potter Fans Will Love The New Scottish £10 Notes

New Scottish £ Note
Bank of Scotland

As massive Harry Potter fans, we know the Wizarding World currency inside and out. There are bronze Knuts, silver Sickles, and golden Galleons. 29 Knuts then make up one Sickle, and there are 17 Sickles in a Galleon. These coins are typically stored in money pouches that hang off Wizards' belts, or under their robes. Wizarding dough is a hundred times more fascinating compared to boring Muggle money, but it will all change with the new Scottish £10 notes that will soon be in circulation.

Later this year, the Bank of Scotland will be releasing its new plastic £10 note. The front design has the same elements as the old one, but with a brand-spanking new design. The portrait of Sir Walter Scott, a Scottish novelist and poet, will still be there, as well as the image of The Mound, the historic head office of the Bank of Scotland in Edinburgh.

The reverse design is where things get interesting. The famous Glenfinnan Viaduct, which has appeared in four Harry Potter films will be printed, along with a steam locomotive that we'd like to imagine as the Hogwarts Express.

Mike Moran, director at Bank of Scotland, said: "The new note retains our much-loved design of Sir Walter Scott with the famous Glenfinnan Viaduct pictured on the back and we've evolved the design by introducing the popular heritage tourist train crossing the bridge."

The new Scottish tenners will be slightly smaller than the current paper ones and will enter circulation in the fall. They're also said to be cleaner, more secure, and more durable. The polymer notes will surely be a hit to both Scottish citizens and Harry Potter fans alike!
