20 Pound Notes - Interesting factoid...

In a long-planned move to make life difficult for forgers, about 150m British £20 notes with a picture of Edward Elgar will be replaced as legal tender on Thursday, July 1, by notes with a picture of Adam Smith

When the change was first announced during the last Labour government, it was noted how apt it was that Gordon Brown should replace a great English composer with a Scots tax collector – for that was Smith’s day job before he became an economist.

(Thanks to the Telegraph for this...)
