De La Rue has designed five new notes to commemorate the centenary of Mandela’s birth, which tell the story of the anti-apartheid revolutionary’s life through images

A series of commemorative banknotes celebrating the centenary of Nelson Mandela’s birth have been released in South Africa, which look to show “the journey of a nation as of the man”.

Mandela, South Africa’s anti-apartheid radical who fought for black rights and later president of the country, was born on 18 July 1918, in Mvezo. He died five years ago on 5 December 2013 in Johannesburg, aged 95.

This year would be his 100th birthday, and the South African Reserve Bank (SARB) set about issuing a set of banknotes which would educate citizens about the various stages in Mandela’s life, and the fight to abolish racial segregation in the country.

Five special edition notes

UK-based banknote design and manufacturing studio De La Rue was commissioned to create the imagery for the special edition banknotes, which use the existing currency’s frameworks, layout, print layers and colour palette, so that they would assimilate more easily into circulation. The studio also worked with the South African State Printworks to print the notes.

“We used the existing note framework for two reasons,” says Julian Payne, head of design at De La Rue. “The special notes are going into circulation with the current series, which also feature Mandela, so keeping similarities helps with public authentication and education, and it also sped up the process, which was essential given the short timeline of the project.”

The design project, which involved coming up with concepts and imagery and engraving the artwork, took De La Rue roughly 18 months, which is “fast for a new series”, Payne adds.

The commemorative note style has been applied to South African rand, and has been applied to 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200-rand notes.

Scenes showing Mandela’s transformation from “boy to president”

Different imagery has been designed for each of the five notes, which look to chronologically “tell the story of Mandela’s life from a young boy through to president of South Africa”, says Payne.

These vignettes – faded, scenic images – feature on the back of the notes, focusing on the life events of Mandela, including Mvezo (“Birth”), Soweto (“Life”), Howick (“Capture”), Robben Island (“Struggle”) and Union Buildings (“Destiny”).

Care was also taken to consider the colours of the notes, and how this would relate to the various scenarios.

For example, the grassland of Mvezo, in the Eastern Cape and Mandela’s birthplace, is represented through green on the 10-rand note, while the more urban setting of the Soweto township where Mandela lived later in life, is captured through brown for the 20-rand note, and the sea around Robben Island, where Mandela was imprisoned, is represented through blue on the 100-rand note.

The back of the notes also feature a more “youthful” portrait of Mandela, says Payne, to contrast with the “older statesmen” image of him on the front of the note, which graces the regular South African banknotes too.

Security features nod to the leader

The front of the note features more “subtle” changes including the denomination of the bank note in the lower-right-hand corner, printed in a special, colour-changing security ink that carries the pattern of Mandela’s famous shirts, and a seven-bar circle that frames Mandela’s portrait image. This aims to represent the bars seen on the post-apartheid South African national flag, and the seven bars on the door of Mandela’s prison cell at Robben Island. These bars also contain ultraviolet (UV) light technology, another security feature.

“Our concept art really impressed the SARB, because it pointed a way to be quite radical within the existing note framework,” says Payne. “Often, commemorative notes will only include a subtle change like a new logo or title. For South Africa, we completely redesigned the vignettes for the backs, replacing the current scenes with the story of Mandela’s life.”

“The journey of a nation”

Payne adds that the designs aim to resonate with and inform South African citizens, not only about Mandela’s life, but about the story that shaped the country’s political and cultural identity.

“South Africa wanted to celebrate Mandela’s centenary,” he says. “But while he will always be the figurehead and focal point, what his generation struggled to achieve was remarkable. The notes are as much about the journey of a nation as of the man.”

The commemorative Nelson Mandela centenary notes are legal tender and have now entered circulation in South Africa. They will run at the same time as the usual notes, and will continue to be used until wear and tear means they “no longer meet circulation quality standards of the SARB”, says Payne. “The SARB also expects many South Africans will collect and keep them,” he adds.

You’ve got to wonder what was going through the minds of Hong Kong Monetary Authority bosses when they opted for a butterfly as one of the themes for our new HK$50 banknote. Some of the designs for the other notes in the 2018 series, to be released in batches in the coming two years, are also a tad dodgy; they are either not representative of our culture, poorly illustrated or come across as too ordinary.

The point of the exercise is mainly to improve security features to make our money harder to forge, but in the process, a better effort could have been made to boost pride and celebrate our rich past. The unfortunate thing is that with a truly cashless society just around the corner, an opportunity may have been missed.

With three retail banks authorised to each issue their versions of five of the six banknote denominations, there was no shortage of space to express ideas. The HKMA chose to be restrictive, though, setting thematic subjects: dim sum for the HK$20, butterflies for the HK$50, Cantonese opera for the HK$100, the Unesco-listed Geopark for the HK$500, and Hong Kong as an international financial centre for the HK$1,000.

Butterflies can be found anywhere in the world and Cantonese opera originated in Guangdong province. The blue colour of the HK$20 note makes some images appear ghostly, although from a design perspective, Bank of China has fared least well among critics. It has been ribbed for an uncharacteristically large dim sum teapot, Geopark rocks that some people contend look like ancient Chinese tombs and perplexingly, for the HK$1,000 bill, a brain with lots of zeros and ones inside.

Banknotes circulate among large numbers of people and throughout the world, so they can promote, inform and educate through their designs while settling cash transactions. Dim sum and Cantonese opera are unquestionably part of Hong Kong’s culture, but with the Cheung Chau bun festival, Tai Hang fire dragon dance, Tai O dragon boat water parade and paper and sewing craft techniques among a score of other topics of intangible heritage, there’s no doubt authorities could have chosen better. They could have even tapped the rich list of Hong Kong’s past luminaries.

Putting the images of famous people on banknotes is a tried-and-tested formula elsewhere. But Hong Kong has never made such a choice, variously opting in its Bank of China, HSBC and Standard Chartered designs since the return to Chinese sovereignty in 1997 for the politically safe bauhinia flower, Victoria Harbour and other natural scenes, landmark buildings, Chinese inventions, calligraphy and symbols, and local festivals.

In Beijing-overseen, postcolonial Hong Kong, officials probably see selecting renowned people as a minefield that is best avoided. But it doesn’t take much thinking to come up with a worthy list of notables for our six denominations.

Instantly coming to mind are paramount leader Deng Xiaoping and martial arts legend and actor Bruce Lee. My choices for the remaining four places are Kai Ho Kai, a 19th century doctor, lawyer and translator who played a key role in relations between the Chinese community and British colonial government; entrepreneur and philanthropist Tang Shiu-kin; movie mogul Run Run Shaw; and Elsie Tu, an advocate for the poor.

But there are numerous other worthies, among them scholar Jao Tsung-i; the father of Hong Kong cinema, Lai man-wai; the founder of modern China, Sun Yat-sen; entertainers Roman Tam, Leslie Cheung and Anita Mui; and for those with a bent for being politically incorrect, the longest-serving and arguably the best British colonial governor, Murray MacLehose.

Applying a commonly-used rule elsewhere that living people can’t be considered means Nobel Prize-winning physicist Charles Kao Kuen, tycoon Li Ka-shing, novelist Louis Cha Leung-yung and first chief executive Tung Chee-hwa aren’t eligible.

Hong Kong, for its small size, is not short of people worth commemorating on banknotes. Assuming hard currency isn’t put out of business sooner rather than later, space should be found on future notes for important people from our past.

A commemorative 20-zloty bank note will be issued by the National Bank of Poland on Aug. 31 in honor of the 100th anniversary of the nation regaining its independence, as the Second Polish Republic, from the German, Austrian, and Russian empires in 1918.

The announcement was made on July 6. Up to 50,000 notes will be printed by the Polska Wytwórnia Papierów Wartosciowych S.A. (Polish Security Printing Works) in Warsaw. Its dimensions will be 150 millimeters by 77 millimeters or 5.9 inches by 3 inches, larger than then 126-millimeter by 63-millimeter size of the regular 20-zloty note, which will continue to circulate.

Each note’s face value is the U.S. equivalent of about $5.42.

The face of the note is dominated by a facing portrait of the revolutionary, statesman, and national hero Józef Piłsudski, with his chin resting on his hand. He served as chief of state of the new republic from its inception until 1922. To his right is the badge of the Polish Military Organization. The cross of the Order of Polonia Restituta is in the center, while the badge of Poland’s World War I 1st Legion Brigade is at the left above the watermark.

Poland’s red and white flag spans most of the reverse side. To its left is a legionary eagle holding an Amazonian shield in its talons with the words RZECZPOSPOLITA POLSKA (Republic of Poland) above.

This is Poland’s tenth commemorative bank note. The first, a 50-zloty note for Pope John Paul II, was issued in 2006. That one, and three others, 20-zloty notes for the 100th anniversary of Marie Curie’s Nobel Prize, the 200th anniversary of the birth of Frédéric Chopin, and 300th anniversary of the coronation of the Image of Our Lady of Czestochowa, are still available at the bank’s website, as will be the new issue

The use of 3D magnetic ink is among the new security elements incorporated in the two denominations of a new series of banknotes put into circulation on Friday to mark His Majesty the King’s 66th birthday on July 28, the Bank of Thailand (BOT) announced.

The 500-baht and 1,000-baht notes are printed with Optically Variable Magnetic Ink (OVMI) to improve security and prevent counterfeiting. They are part of the new Series 17 banknotes. (see photo below)

The BoT announcement said use of OVMI produces three dimensional effects when looked at from different angles and combine with other features that make them easy to identify and create unreproducible effects.

The front of both banknotes feature a portrait of His Majesty the King dressed in a Royal Thai Air Force uniform. The back of the 500-baht banknote features a portrait of King Prajadhipok (King Rama VII) and King Ananda Mahidol (King Rama VIII) as the main picture. The main picture on the back of the 1,000-baht banknote is a portrait of King Bhumibol Adulyadej (King Rama IX), along with a portrait of HM the King. Small squares can also be noticed on the 500-baht note, and circles can be seen on the 1,000-baht note. Their colours switch between gold and green. The public can obtain the new series banknotes from commercial banks and financial institutions from today onwards. The BOT said the printing of the Series 17 notes was approved by the King in March and the first series of new banknotes featuring His Majesty in three denominations — 20, 50 and 100 baht — were launched on Chakri Memorial Day, April 6.

The 500-baht and 1,000-baht-denominated banknotes, with the front side depicting His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun, put into circulation on July 28, 2018 – His Majesty’s 66th…

Hong Kong just gave residents a peek into its new banknotes yesterday (July 24), but one of the bill designs is already being mocked for its resemblance to “hell money,” which Chinese people burn for their deceased loved ones.

HSBC, Standard Chartered, and Bank of China spent three years working with the monetary authority to each design five new notes. In addition to preventing counterfeiting, the new bills are centered around a few themes to promote Hong Kong’s culture and sights, such as dim sum ($20 notes), the city’s Unesco Global Geopark ($500), and Cantonese opera ($100). It’s the last one that has drawn mockery.

Some people say they feel a little unnerved by Bank of China’s version of the $100 note, which features a female Cantonese opera performer, because of its likeness to paper money (link in Chinese) meant for use in the afterlife.

“The design is very scary. One should spend it right after receiving it. I don’t dare to bring it home,” wrote one on Facebook. “The design looks like a cooperation with the ghost bank,” said someone else (links in Chinese) on the social-media site.


The new bills will be put into circulation in the fourth quarter this year. The last time Hong Kong issued new designs of banknotes was in 2010.

The Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA), and the three note-issuing banks (NIBs) (Standard Chartered Bank (Hong Kong) Limited, Bank of China (Hong Kong) Limited and The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited) announce the issue of the 2018 new series Hong Kong banknotes at a press conference in Hong Kong, July 24, 2018. Hong Kong’s new banknotes will have six advanced security features to prevent counterfeiting, and will showcase the city’s rich natural and cultural heritage. (Photo: China News Service/Zhang Wei)

Old paper banknotes, featuring a portrait of Charles Darwin, must be spent by 1 March, after which shops will no longer have to accept them

Old paper £10 notes will go out of circulation by the end of today, after which they will cease to be legal tender in shops.

From Friday 2 March shops will no longer be required to accept the paper banknotes that feature a portrait of Charles Darwin.

New plastic £10 notes depicting Jane Austen were introduced in September 2017.

The Bank of England recently estimated that around £2bn worth of old tenners were still in circulation.

After the deadline, people can exchange old paper notes by posting them or delivering them in person to the Bank of England in central London. The bank said it would accept the old notes indefinitely.

People may also be able to exchange the old note at a local bank or post office but there is no obligation to accept them after the deadline.

The new £10 note is the second to be printed on a plastic polymer, which the bank has said is cleaner, safer and more hard-wearing than the traditional cotton paper it will replace. The plastic fiver, featuring Winston Churchill, entered circulation in September 2016.

The new polymer notes are said to be significantly harder to forge.

When the design of the new £10 was first unveiled in July last year it was praised by members of the blind and visually impaired community for its tactile features.

Raised dots, similar to braille characters, on the left-hand side of the note and fine raised lines on the right, help those who cannot see to differentiate it from notes of other denominations.

A new polymer £20 banknote, featuring artist JMW Turner, is due to be issued in 2020. Bank of England governor Mark Carney said in October that there were no plans to make a new £50 note.
