The full design of the new plastic £10 note will be revealed by Bank of England governor Mark Carney at Winchester Cathedral on Tuesday.
The note, which follows the polymer £5 note into circulation, is likely to be available for use in September.
It will feature a portrait of Jane Austen and is being launched on the 200th anniversary of her death.
A limited supply of a new £2 coin honouring the author has also been put into circulation by the Royal Mint.
The £10 note will be made of the same material as the £5 note, which means it also contains some traces of animal fat – an issue which caused concern for vegans and some religious groups when it was launched last September.
A petition to ban the note attracted more than 100,000 signatures but the new £10 will again contain some tallow, which is derived from meat products.
A new polymer £20 is due to be issued by 2020, but there are no plans to replace the current £50 note, which was released in 2011.
