Process to Co-ordinate the Issue of Hong Kong’s New Series, by three different note-issuing banks won this award. Three different banknote designers were working independently without access to each other’s work, under the close guidance and coordination from HKMA. All 3 new issues have completely different designs but have common security features through all denominations. The innovative approach was to ensure the successful collaboration between various stakeholders, such as the 3 Issuing Banks, the 3 designers, the HK Police Force, HK Note Printing Limited, the Blind and Visually Impaired Community, the suppliers of the Security Features, and the suppliers of the equipment and machines used within the cash cycle.
