Date 22/09/2015: The Reserve Bank today announced the first release of new $5 and $10 notes will take place on Monday 12 October. From that day, new notes will start to be released from banks and retailers.

The current notes (Series 6) and the new notes (Series 7) will circulate together and both will be legal tender.

The remaining denominations of the new series ($20, $50 and $100) will be released from April 2016.

The new banknotes are the same sizes and denominations as the current banknotes, and continue to be made of flexible polymer. While the banknotes are brighter, bolder, and clearer, the themes of the notes remain the same, with the same respected New Zealanders, the Queen and flora and fauna remaining central to the designs.
