A new \u00a310 note is due to be released on 14 September, following on from the new \u00a35 note introduced last year.\r\n\r\nLike the \u00a35, the \u00a310 will be printed on polymer in a bid to be cleaner, safer and stronger than paper notes. The new notes will be smaller than the current notes.\r\n\r\nThe note will feature iconic literary figure Jane Austen and measures 132mm x 69mm. The current paper \u00a310 note features Charles Darwin and is 142mm x 75mm.\r\n\r\nThe paper \u00a310 will be withdrawn from circulation in Spring 2018. Notice will be given three months prior to the withdrawal date.\r\n\r\nOn the front of the polymer \u00a310 note (the side with raised print), there are two clusters of raised dots in the top left hand corner. This tactile feature helps blind and partially sighted people identify the value of the note.\r\n\r\nThey will provide enhanced counterfeit resilience, and increase the quality of notes in circulation.
