The new face of Britain’s £50 note

London (CNN Business)Alan Turing, a crack code-breaker and visionary mathematician who was convicted under Victorian-era homophobic laws, will be the face of Britain’s new £50 note.

Bank of England Governor Mark Carney announced Monday that Turing, who killed himself in 1954 after he was subjected to chemical castration, will appear on the new polymer note by the end of 2021.
In a statement, Carney lauded the Englishman as an “outstanding mathematician” and “a giant on whose shoulders so many now stand.”
