inbrief news Bank notes in circulation Brand new $5 and $10 bank notes were released into circulation on Monday. Although the new notes feature the same famous faces, flora and fauna, they are much brighter than the previous notes. Head of Currency at the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, Brian Hayr, said approximately 345,000 of the new Series 7 banknotes have been dispatched to banks to meet their orders. “This compares with about 45,000,000 Series 6 $5 and $10 notes currently in circulation.” Mr Hayr said for this reason, the public might not get to see a new note for some weeks. “This is because the Reserve Bank distributes banknotes only when it receives orders from banks. Orders for replacement of $5 and $10 notes come in less frequently than other denominations as they tend to circulate much more between retailers and consumers.” Both Series 6 and the new Series 7 notes will circulate together, and both will be legal tender. This means the public can make payment with either the old or the new banknotes.

When the opportunity presented itself to purchase the tea shop Monique says she pounced.
