During the annual Currency Conference, held this year in Vancouver, Canada, the International Association of Currency Affairs (IACA) announced that the sixth issue of Kuwaiti Dinar banknotes had been awarded the 2015 International Award for Best Banknote Issue.
The highly noted IACA award was determined by Central Banks from around the world and other international companies within the banknote manufacturing industry. It was one of eighteen contending currencies.
The Central Bank’s Governor, Dr. Mohammed Y. Al-Hashel, accepted the award and indicated that “such awards represent recognition by specialised organisations of achievement in design, the incorporation of latest security features and relevance of symbolism with regard to the State of Kuwait, its accomplishments and economic milestones throughout history.”
