    Faces on paper money

    This article made me think there are three ways to wind up with your likeness on paper money. Be a monarch, be a head of state otherwise, or be a scientist. I never would have thought of the third category.

    "Many nations display famous scientists on their currency. Some of the physicists illustrated include Lord Kelvin, Nikola Tesla, Marie and Pierre Curie, Lord Ernest Rutherford, Niels Bohr, Albert Einstein, Erwin Shrödinger, and Guglielmo Marconi."

    I remember when Great Brittan put Jack Nicholas on the pound after his final British Open. I think he was the only person ever put on the pound that was not royalty.

      Hm...interesting. I wonder what would happen if the nation (or any nation other than the U.S.) allowed voting on the faces on the dollar bills. That would be an interesting vote!~

          I like the Idea someone had about voting on the faces on money. I bet there would be a strong turnout for something like that
