Banknote of the Year 2012: competition is still open!

The IBNS has published the nominees so far for the Banknote of the Year 2012. The nominees are (in random order):

My personal favourite of these six nominees is the Canadian 50 Dollar which I think is beautiful and innovative. But I'm also missing the gorgeous new notes from South Africa with Nelson Mandela on the front and one of the Big Five animals on the back. So I nominated the 200 Rand note today because I think it's worth at least to be nominated (see image below).

If you also want to nominate a banknote, you can do so until 31 January 2013. Banknotes nominated must have been issued to the public (specimens and non-circulating currencies are inelligble) for the first time during 2012, and must have artistic merit and/or innovative security features. 

E-mail with the details, and your membership number (if possible please include a scan of the front and back of your nomination).
