The Netherlands - 25 gulden

The Netherlands - 25 gulden - 1955 - P87

Isn't that nice? A banknote from my own country of The Netherlands! Depicted is the dutch scientist Christiaan Huygens (1629 - 1695). He was a prominent mathematician, natural philosopher, astronomer, physicist, probabilist and horologist. His work included early telescopic studies of the rings of Saturn (which he discovered) and the discovery of its moon Titan, the invention of the pendulum clock and other investigations in timekeeping. All of these can be seen on the front and back of this nice note.
