New Zealand’s $5 bill named best banknote of ’15

The International Bank Note Society has named New Zealand’s $5 note as the Banknote of the Year 2015. “The note incorporates some of the world’s most advanced security features, yet still beautifully showcases New Zealand’s history, culture, and heritage,” New Zealand officials said. The $5 note, part of New Zealand’s Brighter Money range, features mountaineer Sir Edmund Hillary.
