Scotland issues a new series of banknotes to celebrate the best of Scotland’s heritage, people, and culture, coinciding with the 250th anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns and the Year of Homecoming 2009. The new notes will enter circulation very shortly.

The new family of banknotes celebrates famous Scots on the front and the five World Heritage Sites in Scotland on the back, drawing on the Homecoming themes of Burns, Great Minds and Innovation, Culture and Heritage. The new designs are:

£5: Scientist Sir Alexander Fleming and St. Kilda

£10: Poet Robert Burns and The Old and New Towns of Edinburgh

£20: King Robert the Bruce and New Lanark

£50: Suffragette Elsie Inglis and The Antonine Wall

£100: Architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the Heart of Neolithic Orkney

Hello there Nutmegcollector and readers!
I was on my way looking for some Viagra Online when I managed to encounter your pretty interesting column.
The matter of fact is that I used to think that currency wasn't important at all, however, Now i have realized that I am much more interested that I had thought.
