Are You Ready For The New £10 Note?
Jan Harris, Assistant Editor
The new £10 note featuring Jane Austen comes into circulation on the 14 September 2017. The polymer notes have a longer life than the old paper notes, in fact up to 2.5 times longer.

The note will recognise her universal appeal and enduring contribution to English literature. Jane Austen joins Sir Winston Churchill, Adam Smith, Matthew Boulton and James Watt in showcasing British culture on Bank of England notes.

2017 marks the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's death. She is buried at Winchester Cathedral and this appears on the new £10 note.

The new £10 note will be smaller than the current one - but larger than the new fiver. The size ratios will be the same as the ones between the old paper fiver and paper tenner.

The old ones will gradually be removed but will go out of circulation in Spring 2018.

Any genuine Bank of England notes retain their face value and can always be exchanged at the Bank of England.

The polymer banknotes include a new generation of security features which make them even harder to counterfeit. They are also resistant to dirt and moisture, and so they remain in better condition for longer.

Future banknotes

The new polymer £20 note featuring the artist J.M.W. Turner will be launched in 2020. This was announced by the Bank of England Governor, Mark Carney, on 22 April 2016.

There are no plans as yet to replace the paper £50 note which features Boulton and Watt with a polymer note.
