Today's the day! Yes on 20/02/2020 (see what they did there) the new £20 featuring JMW Turner, the "Painter of Light" and his famous painting "The Fighting Temeraire". The new polymer note (made of the same material as the Churchill £5 and the Austen £10) has a number of new security features including double colour foil, an ultra violet "20" and see-through windows making it, the Bank of England says, the most secure note in production today.
