Every pub quiz it comes up, and every time you forget. Who is on the back of the English £50 note?

You'll be wanting to favourite this page for further study, as thinkmoney take you through the who's who of UK bank notes.

Never again will you forget which sports legend appears on the £5 of Ulster Bank (George Best) or that engineers and inventors appear on the bank notes more than any other profession (other than the Queen, but we're pretty sure that doesn't count).

We expect any winning pub quiz team to reference this page to send us a packet of crisps by way of thanks. Cheese and onion preferable. Pork scratchings will be accepted.
