Queen Elizabeth II - Banknotes

Che made this Official Information request to Reserve Bank of New Zealand

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Che to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Che

Tena ra koutou, the men and women holding offices at the Reserve Bank of New Zealand,

A document from the RBNZ website titled "Handling banknotes: a guide for the public (2016)" states the following point on page 6 :

"You should be able to see a shadow image of the H. M. Queen Elizabeth II when you hold the note to the light."
https://www.rbnz.govt.nz/research-and-pu...

Additionally, a document titled "Security features of New Zealand banknotes (2008)" also states the same for Series 6 notes.
https://www.rbnz.govt.nz/research-and-pu...

Given that said 2008 & 2016 documents indicate that notes should feature the shadow-image of the Queen, and that Series 7 polymer notes were issued in 2015/16, it follows that the Queen's image should be visible on those notes, but is not.

The above RBNZ public statements are cause for confusion by possible mis-statement or otherwise, and in the interests of the people, and indeed the honour of the Sovereign, an explanation is hereby sought for the omission of said image from Series 7 notes, including a request for the provision of any official orders given or gazetted in relation to said omission.

Nga mihi,

MAKETU
