by Joe Murphy Librarian on July 24th, 2013

Jane Austen will grace the new British £10 note in 2017 to replace favorite Charles Darwin in the circulation.
This announcement made by The Bank of England at Jane Austen’s House Museum will ensure that women continue to be represented on British currency.

The new bank note will include this quote by Austen from Pride and Prejudice, “I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading!”
