New plastic £10 note featuring Jane Austen unveiled

15% smaller than current tenner, will be issued to the public on 14 September (no doubt after the valuable ones have been issued f.o.c. to the Queen, etc, etc). Current paper tenners due to be withdrawn some time in 2018, date t.b.c.

The Royal Mint has issued a commemorative Jane Austen £2 coin. Costs... a tenner
(or £825 if you want the gold version).
