The Reserve Bank of Fiji (RBF) was awarded the ‘Regional Commemorative Banknote of the Year Award 2021’ for the commemorative $50 banknote at the Reconnaissance International High Security Printing Webinar that was held on 16 December 2021. The commemorative banknote was issued into circulation from 07 October 2020.
The Governor said that “the RBF is extremely proud of this achievement and extends its appreciation to De La Rue Currency for partnering with the Bank to design a high quality banknote that not only showcased Fiji’s diversity as an independent nation but also emphasised key elements from Fiji’s Independence journey”. The Governor also thanked all other stakeholders for their contribution towards the designing, production, launch and issuance of Fiji’s 50th Anniversary of Independence commemorative banknote.
The Bank is grateful to Reconnaissance International for recognising Fiji’s commemorative banknote, as this reaffirms Fiji’s currency as amongst the best in the world. The RBF is proud to contribute to our nation’s historic 50th Anniversary of Independence milestone achieved last year.
