ADAM SMITH BECOMES FIRST SCOT ON A BRITISH BANKNOTE

According to a BBC news article, "A new 20 note featuring a
portrait of economist Adam Smith is to be issued, the Bank of
England has said. The new note will signal the start of a new
series of notes which will come into circulation next spring.

When Adam Smith replaces composer Edward Elgar on 20 notes, he
will also make history as the first Scotsman to appear on a Bank
of England note."

"However, while it may be his first appearance on English currency,
it his not his first on a bank note. He is already featured on a
Scottish 50 note."
