Flora Stevenson is being portrayed on the new 50 pounds banknote (SCO-RB50.2) to be issued by Royal Bank of Scotland.
The new note will start circulating on 18 August 2021. It is printed on polymer substrate, and its size – 146 x 77mm – corresponds to the 50 pounds English note (GBP-BoE50.4) issued days ago.
Ms Stevenson was a Scottish educator who devoted her life to promote girls’ schooling. The design was unveiled at Edinburgh’s Flora Stevenson Primary School, named after her on its opening in 1899, when she turned 60.
