n~ British slang. {who-blons}
Fifty pounds sterling banknote. Named because the portrait on the reverse of the £50 note is of Sir John Houblon, the first Governor of the Bank of England in 1694.

British variation of the US slang "Benjamins".

While a new £50 note has been in circulation since 2010 showing James Watt and Matthew Boulton, John Houblon's beautiful judge's wig is always the image people know and love.
