The Bank of England is gearing up to release the new polymer £10 note in the summer of 2017, it has been reported.
Jane Austen is set to be the face of the new note.
Also, a new plastic £20 note will be released in 2020.
Bank of England governor Mark Carney said at a 2013 press conference:
“Jane Austen certainly merits a place in the select group of historical figures to appear on our banknotes,” the Bank of England governor said.
“Her novels have an enduring and universal appeal and she is recognised as one of the greatest writers in English literature.
“As Austen joins Adam Smith, Boulton and Watt, and in future, Churchill, our notes will celebrate a diverse range of individuals who have contributed in a wide range of fields.”
