New Bank of England £10 note revealed, watch how it is made

New Bank of England £10 note revealed, watch how it is made

The coin will initially only be available in tills at key locations in the Winchester and Basingstoke areas that have connections with Austen, including Winchester Cathedral and the Jane Austen House Museum.

There must, presumably, be a far better quote from Austen knocking about that would have made for good banknote fodder, but presumably, everyone had a quick look on Google then went for a nice long lunch after patting themselves on the back for being jolly inclusive.

It is also the first banknote printed by the Bank of England to feature braille, with two clusters of raised dots identifying the note's value for blind or sight-impaired people.

The new £10 note follows the polymer £5 note, which has been in the middle of controversy due to its manufacturing process.

The Bank of England said it had considered destroying, reprinting and delaying the issue of the new note in response to the backlash from vegetarians and vegans. She was chosen after a campaign for more female representation. At first glance, that reads as a perfectly appropriate inscription for this particular banknote, but alas, as The Guardian notes, the quote is actually attributed to Pride And Prejudice character Caroline Bingley, who didn't care for reading. "It works on many levels". "Austen's novels have a universal appeal and speak as powerfully today as they did when they were first published".

The new £10 features Jane Austen, sparking sexist backlash

However, a supply contract has yet to be signed for the manufacture of new £20 polymer notes - set to be released in 2020 - as the Bank weighs up plant-based substitutes.

Shortly after becoming the Bank of England governor in 2013, Mr Carney announced that Austen would replace scientist Charles Darwin on the £10 note.

The Bank of England has praised the new notes for being waterproof and having enhanced security features. Austen died in the city in 1817.

Polymer is a thin, flexible plastic film that is seen as more durable and secure and is used also for notes in Australia and Canada.

Ms Evans said: "I imagined Jane Austen's framed silhouette as if it were in one of the houses featured in her books, on the wall of a corridor as guests passed by to attend a dance, perhaps in Pride and Prejudice, or on the wall in the home of Emma".

IPhone 8's software isn't ready yet either, dread ensues at Apple
Apple has never made a phone with an OLED screen , though, and it faces sourcing woes due to a global scarcity in OLED displays. The iPhone 8 will reportedly feature inductive charging , likely based on the Qi wireless charging standard or a variant of it.
