IBNS Banknote of the Year 2012

The International Banknote Society (IBNS) announces "that its voting membership has again selected the National Bank of Kazakhstan to receive its prestigious “Bank Note of the Year” Award for 2012. Facing stiff competition as always from nearly 100 new banknotes released worldwide in 2012, the 5000 Tenge denomination Kazakhstan note was followed in voting by the Canada 50 Dollar and Jersey 100 Pound currency bills."

On the IBNS forum one of the members raises a very interesting complaint about this winning note. As you can clearly see on the website of the National Bank of Kazakhstan, the 5000 tenge banknote is part of the 2011 series and it even has an official issue date of 30 December 2011 which would make it impossible to enter the 2012 competition.

My opinion (I repeat, my opinion): I'm not crazy about the design of this banknote. I think it's too busy, too crowded with symbolism and the colours look a bit cheap. But congrats anyway and you can already send in nominations for Banknote of the Year 2013!
