The Bank of England is the central bank of the United Kingdom. Our mission, as set out in our original Charter in 1694, is to ‘promote the good of the people of the United Kingdom’. We achieve this via our timeless outcomes: stable prices; a resilient financial system; secure and reliable payments, banking services, and banknotes; and safe, sound and resolvable firms. As part of this, confidence in banknotes is important for keeping the whole economy functioning. That is why we work hard to ensure our notes are high quality, durable and difficult to counterfeit.
