New plastic £10 note featuring Jane Austen unveiled
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-40641382

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 Current paper tenners due to be withdrawn some time in 2018, date t.b.c.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).

If you still have any old £10 notes, make sure you spend them before 1 March next year.

The Bank of England has announced that the old paper notes, featuring naturalist Charles Darwin, will no longer be legal tender after that date.

Over £2 billion in old £10 notes still in circulation as cut-off date to spend them looms

More than £2 billion worth of old-style £10 notes remain in circulation, with less than a fortnight to go until they are no longer accepted in UK shops.

From March 1, the paper £10 note will cease to be legal tender - replaced completely by the polymer version.
