Find The Lady On The New £50,000 £5 Note

Next year the UK gets new, I guess tallow free, £10 notes with Jane Austen on the back. To celebrate the 200th anniversary of her death.

Winston Churchill is on the new £5 note but artist and engraver Graham Short has engraved a tiny portrait of Jane Austen onto four of them. And for the lucky people who find one of the Jane Austen £5 notes already in circulation they are potentially worth £50,000 based on the insurance value of his work. Each took two weeks to create.

They look like this.

Not so worried about the tallow now are you??
