IACA Excellence in Currency Awards

The Board of Directors of the International Association of Currency Affairs is proud to announce a special 2021 round of IACA Excellence in Currency Awards to recognize innovations in the currency industry launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  These special awards will highlight important contributions and innovations of lasting significance by organizations in our community.

There are two separate categories: one for central banks or monetary authorities and the second for other types of organizations.

Anyone may nominate an innovation that meets our criteria;  IACA membership is not required to submit a nomination.  Details of the awards program may be found in our Guidelines under the Currency Awards tab above.

Nominations may be made from May 10th through May 31st, 2021 through our awards application:


The awards will be presented during a virtual event planned for later this year.
