NGB100 Transportation Banknote Orders Are Open

New $20

The design of the new $20 was revealed in February 2019. Read all about it in our media release.

New $20 banknotes are currently available for machine manufacturers to calibrate their equipment. We provide two rounds of production notes for testing. The first run of notes is available to order now. From June you will be able to order notes from a larger production run which will include more production variation and a new signature block.

New $20 assurance notes will be available to machine users (such as retailers, banks and other customers) to test the readiness of their equipment eight weeks prior to the general circulation date. The circulation date will be in the month of October 2019, with the exact date to be announced later in the year.  If you would like to be part of this program, please contact our Industry Engagement Team for details.

New $100

New $100 transportation notes will be available after Easter and we are now processing orders. Transportation banknotes allow equipment manufacturers to develop and implement any transportation updates resulting from the architecture of the new banknotes. These notes do not represent final production notes.

If you are a banknote equipment manufacturer and have a signed Banknote Loan Agreement with us, you should have received a separate email with instructions for placing orders. If have not received this email, please contact our Industry Engagement Team.

New $100 banknotes will be available later this year for calibration purposes for banknote equipment manufacturers. These banknotes are part of the first print run that will be issued into circulation.
