Mathematicians & Mathematics on Currency

This page has a listing of mathematics on currency. The connections to mathematics range from those individuals who are clearly thought of as mathematicians, to those for whom the connection is much weaker. It is interesting to see which countries honor mathematicians and scientists by placing them on their currency. In the United States it was somewhat of a stretch to include any currency since those honored on currency tend to be reserved to politicians and especially past presidents.
