The front of the banknote features a holographic foil stripe, showcasing the image of ‘Prosperity’ below the pediment of the Mound, alongside a thistle motif in the background. A depiction of Sir Walter Scott and the iconic Bank of Scotland building in Edinburgh add a touch of grandeur. Flipping the note, the back presents the Falkirk ship lifting wheel, symbolizing innovation.
