The Reserve Bank has announced that the New Zealand currency is about to get a redesign.

All notes will undergo a redesign, although the same people will be on each bank note. Some of the coins will change their colour.

The Reserve Bank is in charge of looking after New Zealand’s currency. They have said that the risk of counterfeit money is one of the reasons it’s upgrading the design and security features.

Counterfeiting is when people copy the bank notes and make them using their own equipment.

The bank is also looking at ways of marking next year’s centenary of the ANZAC landings at Gallipoli.

The new banknotes will have better security features and refreshed designs and will continue to be made of a flexible polymer plastic.

The “final” designs will be released in November with the new currency available in late 2015.

  1. I think it’s cool how they are going to change the design for the notes and colour of coins

  2. I think that it is cool how they are changing it but it will be annoying to know what one is which and what ones you can or can’t use

  3. It has been a while since the notes and coins have changed. It will be a hassle to go change all of your existing notes and coins.

  4. I’m glad they’re improving the safety ‘cos I have seen many times on the newspaper about people faking money.

  5. AWSOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Then our new zealand notes will look differnet from australia yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:#):#):#):#):#):#):#):#):#):#):#):#)
