Jack Nicklaus has received countless awards and honors over his career as a professional golfer, but perhaps nothing compares to the honor bestowed upon him by the Royal Bank of Scotland. The Royal Bank of Scotland issued 2 million £5 notes with the Golden Bear's image impressively upon them. The Royal Bank of Scotland has been around since 1727, and Jack Nicklaus was the only living person to ever appear on a Scottish note besides Her Majesty the Queen, and the late Queen Mother.
This particular note has been graciously signed by Jack Nicklaus. The signature is excellent, and was signed with a black sharpie that so wonderfully matches the colors of the currency.
