50 whilst not rare are not really in common usage over here and generally generate mild confusion in shops etc if you proffer one to the assistant.

I really can't remember the last time I saw a 50 note in the flesh.
There's just something...low class...about handing off a stack of 20-pound notes (in this case, 42 of them) to our landlady to pay our rent. But if it's only going to cause trouble for her at her bank when she tries to deposit 16 50-pound notes and 2 20-pound notes, well, I guess I'll just have to be low class!

I suppose I could also ask if she accepts payment by other means. Giving cash to my sister-in-law and having her write a check to our landlady would be more trouble than it would be worth.
