A little frippery does us good – for Jane Austen fans


Experts suggest people should keep an eagle eye open for the new UK £10 notes featuring JA01 (as in Jane’s Austen’s initials), JA75, as that is her birth year; and JA17, the year of the author’s death. One £10 note with Jane Austen’s picture on it and the number J1775 has been sold on Ebay for £10,000!  Wow, where’s my purse?

While AA01 codes on the new plastic fiver were the ones to look out, it appears JA has captured collectors’ imagination on the £10 note.

New AH £10 notes appear to be attracting bids up to three times their face value, while the first of the AA01 notes are changing hands for £250. If someone could explain what AH means, I would be grateful.

I found the information above in the daily news online.  It also appears that £5 coins will appreciate as there is nowhere that you can buy them.  However, there are all sorts of coins available at the Royal Mint, including Queen and Prince Philip featuring with the Red Arrows, on the 90th anniversary of the Royal Air Force.

Best of luck to you!
