Feel free to throw out suggestions and reasons. I'll do a poll after I get a decent list. Try to avoid national bias.

Unlike traditional banking where clients have only a few account numbers, with Bitcoin people can create an unlimited number of accounts (addresses). This can be used to easily track payments, and it improves anonymity.

Ok how about some more legit people related to the principles of bitcoin. Include some reasoning.

Doesn't need to be people. The silk road and alpaca I think count.

Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press which allowed information to more easily transmissable, as Bitcoin is doing to money and as the internet has done in modern days.

Franklin used the press to print money and used leaves as a means to prevent counterfeiting, one of the first solid instances of anti-counterfeiting techniques in money that I'm aware of.

And what about Julian Assange?

As long a the bills can be determined to be legitimate through non-aesthetic methods (validation of balance sent to its address, for example), I would suggest allowing whoever initiates the "minting" of the bills to put whoever they want or whatever graphic they want on them, essentially custom-ordered at the time of purchase/exchange.

The other suggestions were mostly fine, but I really like this one.

I was going to suggest Betty Boop... as a figure from the great depression era,  but it looks like someone beat me to it as far as using her image on money:
http://www.ioffer.com/i/betty-boop-million-dollar-novelty-bill-123205955

I guess she mightn't quite convey enough gravitas anyway Wink


Instead.. I'll vote for Alan Turing & Grace Hopper

I think a series of Bitcoin notes all featuring famous cryptographers would be awesome.

Plenty to choose from!

An actual mirror. It's people's currency, after all.

We shouldn't put portraits on money. I recommend equations and functions related to the bitcoin algorithms.

Bitcoin combines money, the wrongest thing in the world, with software, the easiest thing in the world to get wrong.

I didn't want to speak up as I thought I was the only one that felt this way.

I vote for the alpaca.

I personally am against putting actual people on currency too.

Old U.S. coins used to have images of Lady Liberty, the embodiment of an idea, on them before they switched to dead presidents.

I think she would be a nice face to see returned to money. Or barring that, some other embodiment(s) of an idea (although such things don't seem as popular nowadays, not sure what would be both available and well-known.)

Bitcoin is the ultimate freedom test. It tells you who is giving lip service and who genuinely believes in it.

In the future, books that summarize the history of money will have a line that says, “and then came bitcoin.” It is the economic singularity. And we are living in it now. - Ryan Dickherber

ATTENTION BFL MINING NEWBS: Just got your Jalapenos in? Wondering how to get the most value for the least hassle? Give BitMinter a try! It's a smaller pool with a fair & low-fee payment method, lots of statistical feedback, and it's easier than EasyMiner! (Yes, we want your hashing power, but seriously, it IS the easiest pool to use! Sign up in seconds to try it!)
...
...
The idea that deflation causes hoarding (to any problematic degree) is a lie used to justify theft of value from your savings.
