RBS asks the public to nominate Scots for the new £10

The Royal Bank of Scotland is asking the public to choose a new face for its new 10-pound polymer banknote. More specifically the RBS is asking for a Scottish historical figure who has contibuted to the field of science and innovation. The new polymer note is scheduled to be issued in the second half of 2017. 

From the website: "People can nominate as many different people as they want either online ( www.rbs-communities.co.uk ) or on Facebook ( www.facebook.com/royalbankofscotland )

In order to be considered, nominees must be historical figures who are Scottish or have made a significant contribution to Scotland in the field of science and innovation.

So long as there is a good reason for the nomination, the person does not have to be famous.

A shortlist will be announced in January, with a further vote to decide the person whose portrait will be featured on the notes. This shortlist will be compiled on merit rather than volume of nominations."

The nomination process is open to anyone, with all suggestions to be made by 20 December. Here's a list of Scottish scientists to provide some inspiration.
