New Bank of England 'Adam Smith' note enters circulation today

The Bank of England is putting its new GBP20 note, with a portrait of 18th century economist Adam Smith on the reverse, into circulation today, although the previous version (featuring Sir Edward Elgar) will continue to circulate for some years.

I wrote about this last October when the introduction of the new note was announced. Even the richest folk in the world think Adam Smith is a pretty cool dude.
