RM Scientist 50p - who would the forum like?

Recommended Posts

Just completed a survey for the RM relating to having Scientists on future coins.

Basically they wanted to know who you would want (Freetext) and then gave you a shortlist (presumably their own list). Theses included Turing, Faraday, Fleming Babbage etc...

I was wondering who the forum would like to go alongside Newton and Hawking coins?

I voted Turing, in my mind the image would look pretty cool if it incorporated modern coding with the Enigma machine...

My choice would be Nikola Tesla, Viktor Schauberger or Weston A. Price but none were English.

My English choice is Rupert Sheldrake.

I'd go for Turing too, but he's favourite to be on the next £50.

I'll go for my local Hampshire hero, Gilbert White. He's basically the founding father of naturalism and his book, The Natural History of Selborne, has been in print since it was first published in 1789. It would also be a good complement to the Jane Austen banknote since Selborne is a short pony-and-trap ride from Jane's house at Chawton.

Sheldrake was a scientist once, but certainly isn't any more.
