Banknotes come to life to tell the story of the Queen’s reign with Blippar

Blippar, the image recognition and augmented reality app, is bringing all Bank of England banknotes to life this week to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II becoming the nation’s longest serving monarch.

For the next four days people will be able to ‘blipp’ (scan) any Bank of England note with their smartphones to watch videos, view image galleries and take a journey through the Queen’s record 63 years on the throne.

After downloading the free Blippar app, anyone with a banknote, or even an online image of one, can view specially created content, including the Queen’s most memorable moments, a guide to Her Majesty’s illustrious ancestry and the opinions of Britons on their much-loved monarch.

Users will get to take a ‘selfie’ with Her Majesty, find out how royal they are and, most importantly, donate to six of the Queen’s charities.
