About the IACA’s Excellence in Currency Awards

IACA’s Excellence in Currency Awards program was introduced in 2007 to promote and recognize excellence in banknote and coin production, processing, management, distribution, and related activities of the cash community. Any organization or individual involved in the currency community, including issuing authorities and industry suppliers can be eligible for an IACA award. Over the years the Currency industry has come to understand, appreciate and highly regard the importance of IACA’s Awards Program and the recognition it offers outstanding projects.

Overview of the Awards process: IACA will announce the opening of the nomination period for specific categories of Awards where anyone may nominate a project which qualifies according to the Award Guidelines and Criteria. After close of the nomination period, our Judging Committee will review all nominations and judge the projects against the specific criteria for the respective category. The results of the judging provide IACA with the Finalists in each category. These finalists are presented to our designated voting members who are able to review and vote for the winners. Winners are typically announced in conjunction with an Industry Conference.
