The Reserve Bank of New Zealand has announced three new currency notes that will begin circulating on May 16. The new series 7 banknotes you should be on the lookout for are the $20, $50 and $100 bills.

“Our banknotes are the national emblems that are most frequently accessed by all our citizens. They reflect who and what we value and remember, our taonga; and they declare what we want to say about our place in the world. I am sure that New Zealanders will appreciate the quality and enhanced integrity of the new notes,” said Sir Jerry Mateparae, New Zealand's 20th Governor-General.

All the new banknotes from Series 7 will have the same four main security features, which you can see below are the holographic window, puzzle number, raised ink and a color changing bird.
