Pounds vs. dollars

Who ends up on coinage and paper money says a lot about a country. So let's do a quick rundown of who's on certain denominations of pounds, compared with dollars.

One pound coin vs. $1 bill
Two pound coin vs. $2 bill
Five pound note vs. $5 bill
Ten pound note vs. $10 bill
Twenty pound note vs. $20 bill

They put scientists and social reformers on their money (and OK, the Queen, but she HAS to be on there, it's one of the perks of the job), while we put old dead politicians on ours. Plus, their money is pretty!
