Jane Austen to grace Bank of England 10-pound note

This computer generated image provided by the Bank of England Wednesday July 24, 2013, shows the concept design for the reverse of the new 10-pound note with a picture of Jane Austen. The Bank of England chose the chronicler of 18th century English country life as the new face of the note, bowing to critics who complained that the venerable institution was ignoring women as candidates to be featured on the currency.
