Adam Smith (1723 - 1790) is one of the fathers of modern economics. In one of his great works, An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, Smith famously used the example of workers in a pin factory to describe the benefits created by the division of labour, and, as explained on the note, "the great increase in the quantity of work that results".

There is a large number 20 and £ symbol in the top left corner on the front of the note to assist easy recognition of its value; this negates the need for a specific symbol for the partially sighted. There is also a slightly smaller number 20 in the top and bottom right corners.

. But the value of the pound has not been linked to gold for many years, so the meaning of the promise to pay has changed. Exchange into gold is no longer possible and Bank of England notes can only be exchanged for other Bank of England notes of the same face value. Public trust in the pound is now maintained by the operation of monetary policy, the objective of which is price stability.

.Obverse and reverse of an Iraqi One Dinar note of the 1980's. The obverse shows a gold dinar coin, and the reverse a view of Mustansinya School in Baghdad. These notes were printed from 1978 to 1990, and were known as the Swiss Dinar, from the printing technology which produced the high quality banknotes. This currency was no longer endorsed by the Iraqi Government after the first Gulf War, and was replaced with the New Dinar after the Second Gulf War. At today's (2011) rate of exchange, this is worth less than a penny, which is probably less than the cost of the ink used to print it.
