From the BBCSteve Austin to be face of the £10 NoteSteve Austin is to feature on the next £10 note, the Bank of England says, avoiding a long-term absence of cyborgs represented on banknotes.
The barely-alive, rebuilt astronaut will be the next face of the note, replacing Charles Darwin, probably in 2017.
In April, the Bank said that the image of Robocop would be put on the £5 note from 2016.

Robocop is set to replace the depiction of the lead fembot on the £5 note. She is currently the only cyborg woman on Bank of England banknotes apart from the borg Queen.
