One problem with this

Putting a scientist on the £50 doesn't mean much recognition for the British scientist chosen.

Because the average Briton seldom sees a fifty.

Short of massive inflation reducing the British pound to a fraction of its current worth, the image when chosen will appear briefly in the news and then fade from memory. Finally becoming a question on a tv quiz show in a few years.
