What if Tolkien were on your banknote?




With news earlier this year that Jane Austen will adorn the ten-pound note in England, others have wondered what other literary figures could have made it.

One of the most beloved English writers, J.R.R. Tolkien, has been given the banknote treatment as part of a series of mock-ups created by Ukash.

The note, which isn't a specific currency but rather a brand new one offers up some elvish as well as a quote from Bilbo Baggins.

The series contains other figures including Frankenstein writer Mary Shelley and biologist Rosalind Franklin.
