Pile of polymer bank notes

Polymer bank notes were introduced in 1999. The current designs feature famous New Zealanders. This was the first major redesign since decimal currency was introduced in 1967.


Who chooses the designs for New Zealand's coins and bank notes?

The selection of new currency designs is done by committee drawing heavily on public opinion surveys and expert recommendations. See notes and coins on the main Reserve Bank website for more information.
