Victoria Cleland £10 2017 B415 Jane Austen Polymer Unc
Victoria Cleland is no longer Chief Cashier at the Bank of England, having been promoted. She was
succeeded by Sarah John in June 2018.
It was during Cleland’s term of office that the Bank of England started the transition from paper to
polymer banknotes. The Polymer £10 note issued in September 2017 features a
portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the front with a portrait of Jane Austen alongside a view of
Godmersham House on the back. Instead of the embedded security thread of the paper £10 note, a see
though security panel serves the same purpose.
