The note, which is 15% smaller than the previous £10 note, has many security features to assure customers and retailers the note they have is genuine and reduce counterfeiting.
These include a large see-through window with a finely detailed metallic image of Winchester Cathedral positioned over it. When the note is tilted, a multi-coloured rainbow effect can be seen. The foil '£' symbol in the window is silver seen from the front of the note and copper on the back. At the side of the window is a coloured quill which changes from purple to orange when the note is tilted.
Below the see-through window is a silver foil patch with a hologram that changes from the word 'Ten' to the word 'Pounds'. A three-dimensional image of the coronation crown is displayed and shows a multi-coloured rainbow effect when tilted.
On the back of the note there's a book-shaped copper foil patch containing the letters JA, immediately behind the silver crown on the front. If you look at the front of the note under ultra-violet light, the number 'Ten' appears in bright red and green.
There's also a tactile feature to help blind and partially-sighted people confirm its value, with two clusters of raised dots on the front left-hand corner. This feature doesn't appear on the new £5 note but will do on the new £20 note, due to be issued in 2020.
