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 access to 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.

As well as being able to view exclusive content on the Queen, users will get to take a ‘selfie’ with Her Majesty, find out how royal they are and, most importantly, donate to six charities the Queen is patron to.

You can check out how it works in the YouTube video below:
