This always fascinates me. I have some old French and German currency from when we visited there shortly before their transitions to the euro and they had Planck on one bill and Gauss on another and I thought that was very cool. In the US all of the bills have various presidents on them and that's kind of boring except for Benjamin Franklin on the 100 who is a notable exception. Why some of those were chosen is beyond me like Jackson on the 20. Why? He really wasn't that notable as a president. I think it is much better to have prominent inventors on them so Nikolas Tesla should be on one although they would probably choose Edison instead.

Anyway, Turing is a great choice. Maybe they can have Steven Hawking on one someday.
