I'll start it off with this Croatia 25 Dinars. 110 x 62 mm in size.



The scientist is Roger Boscovich, about whom a rather detailed account may be read at:

I still have one of these in a box somewhere. I don't really collect bank notes (keep them more or less when not able to spend and not worth enough to change for anything else or having plans to revisit a country), but I remember having one of the original Mad Scientist.

Come to think of it, the same box also contains one of these, a 1000 old Zloty note with Nikolaus Copernicus on it. I'll try to find that box again and then I'll make some pics of my actual notes.

There seem to be many notes with scientists around, actually.

The Norwegian scientist just above being Kristian Birkeland, who was the first to formulate a viable theory explaining the Aurora Borealis. More about him and his accomplishments can be found at:

Sorry, no scan, but the US $100 bill with Benjamin Franklin certainly qualifies.

Here's one I don't have yet but which I'll need to add to my collection at some point, an Israel 5 Lirot - the scientist in this case being iconic.



It's not well known that the office of President of Israel was once actually offered to Einstein (he declined).

That's a great note. Even the watermark bears his schnozz.

Here's another common modern note with this theme that I've got to get my hands on - Great Britain 1.
