Yeah, the Italian bills are all from the same picture. Unfortunately Jetpunk's minimum size for an image means I can't crop it any smaller.

Additionally, it is very hard to find regular currency pictures on Wikimedia Commons. Since they're all pretty normal, people don't think to upload pictures of them, and thus the regular currencies are drowned out in rarer and older editions.

I wonder if Marie Curie is the only person on two different country's currency; the 500 old French franc and 20 000 old Polish Zloty. (except Elizabeth II)

Maybe accept Touring for Turing? It's obviously written wrong but a common typo I imagine.

Alan Turing has a default type in on Jetpunk, so that's the one I used.
