The new plastic 10 pounds note has been unveiled by Bank of England governor Mark Carney at Winchester Cathedral.
The note will be issued on 14 September and has a portrait of Jane Austen on the 200th anniversary of the author's death.
It is also the first Bank of England note to include a tactile feature to help visually impaired people.
Meanwhile, a limited supply of a new 2 pounds coin honouring Jane Austen has been put into circulation by the Royal Mint.
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.
It will be circulated more widely across the UK later this year.
The Bank of England says the new 10 pounds notes contain sophisticated security features and are expected to last five years, which is two-and-a-half times longer than the current note.
