Sneak peek: Bank of England new £10 polymer note

The Bank of England is gearing up to release the new polymer £10 note in the summer of 2017.

Jane Austen is set to be the face of the new note.

"Jane Austen certainly merits a place in the select group of historical figures to appear on our banknotes" the Bank of England governor Mark Carney said.

Her novels have an enduring and universal appeal and she is recognized as one of the greatest writers in English literature.
