The Bank of England are accepting nominations for the next £50 note. Matthew Boulton (entrepreneur)  and James Watt (scientist) appear on the current £50 notes. You can nominate as many people as you like. But anyone who appears on the new £50 note must:

  • have contributed to the field of science
  • be real – so no fictional characters please

  • inspire people, not divide them
