Jane Austen featured on new British 10-pound note

Posted July 20, 2017

At the unveiling, which marked the 200th anniversary of Austen's death, Bank Of England governor Mark Carney explained why she was singled out for the honor.

The event took place in the Winchester Cathedral of southern England.

The note is a part of the initial batch of the new "tenner" notes which will be made available to the public from September 14 this year. "I am delighted that the Jane Austen £10 note incorporates an innovative tactile feature, which I hope will greatly benefit blind and partially sighted users".

The new 10-pound note, which is due to go into circulation on September 14, is the bank's latest effort to make its notes more secure.
