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.
