I don’t know of banknotes, but I know of coins. For example, before the Euro was introduced in Portugal in 2002, the old 100 escudos coin featured Pedro Nunes (15021578) who was a Portuguese mathematician and cosmographer.
Isn’t Euler on the Swiss?
Apologies to Mike. I should have read his comment first. Nice link.
The 10 Turkish Lira banknotes (http://www.codingday.com/cahit.jpg) has an equation of the mathematician Cahit Arf.

Niels Henrik Abel on the old Norwegian 500 kroner banknote.
Thanks all. It was a pleasant surprise to see Arf on a 10 Turkish Lira banknote. (See next post. Clicking on the 10 Lira picture there will take you to a recent breakthrough regarding Arf invariants.)
Sadly, the latest issue of the Swiss ten franc note has replaced Euler with architect Le Corbusier.
