notes based on their artistic merit, imaginative design and new
security features. For more information, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Among the bank notes nominated so far:

formation of the Polish Legions. The face of the note features a
portrait of Marshal Jozef Klemens Pilsudski wearing his military
uniform. The back design shows depictions of the many Polish military awards.
Trinidad & Tobago’s $50 note marking the 50th anniversary of the
islands’ central bank. The face of the gold-colored notes features
vignettes of the nation’s coat of arms, a red hibiscus flower and a
red-capped cardinal bird in flight. The back design depicts a young
female Carnival masquerader in her costume and a vignette of the
French Pacific Territories 5,000-franc note with designs on the face
and back focusing on depictions of various ocean life including a
pearl in an oyster shell.
Israel’s new 50-shekel notes honoring poet Saul Tchernichovsky on
the face of the note along with images of citrus fruit and leaves. The
back design shows capitals of Corinthian columns in reference to parts
