Theme Money

Print money with a different theme every year
  [vote for,

One thing I always hated about money is that it basically immortilizes people who have really done no more than sink us further into trouble than we were when they started. Politicians. I would like to see money that immortalizes something special or memorable from the past. Anything from cars to Dolly. (the sheep, not Parton). I don't claim ownership of this idea, the French started it by placing famous scientists on their money. But changing it every year would make for a more interesting transfer of funds.

       £5 and £10 notes honour George Stephenson and Charles Darwin - an outstanding engineer and scientist. Who would you rather have? David Beckham?

       I probably should have specified I am from Canada, all I ever see on money is dead prime ministers, queens, and when I cross the border, dead presidents. I guess people from more progressive countries find this idea baked. Apologies.

       How about 'bakery bucks? Redeemable for halfbakery merchandise... featuring famous ideas/bakers on one side and a croissant on the other.
