As of today (1 July 2010) the British will no longer be able to pay with the £20 bank note picturing Edward Elgar. It is being replaced by one with the image of economist Adam Smith.

The removal of this composer from the bank notes means that the arts are no longer represented on British paper money, much to the dislike of some.
