Some of the earlier Scottish banknotes are very attractively designed.
This Caledonian Banking Company One Pound note from 1876 also has a motto in Gaelic around the edge:
"Tir ‘nam Beann ‘nan Gleann ’s ‘nan Gaisgeach" which translates as 'The land of Women, Glens, and Heroes' — I had to look up Gaisgeach, got the rest though.
