Have you ever looked at a £5 note and wondered “Haven’t I seen you somewhere before?”

Often unnoticed and obviously unaware, the fiver is present for significant moments in each person’s life – from an appreciation of their skills as a street performer, the start or end of relationships to the simple realisation that they can afford a bed for the night.
