    I had you down as a cash-in-hand, finger-tap-on-the-side-of-the-nose, glance-over-the-shoulder kind of guy.

    I don't know about New Zealand - but Australia's getting some new fancy banknotes sometime in the near future... do a Google search for the look...

    I only ever carry nuggets of gold.


    (Please be aware, most retailers do not accept nuggets of gold for payment of goods; not even Starbucks).

    They aren't a lot different from the old ones, so they'll fade just the same. Strange things happen to them in washing machines ...

    You wash your banknotes?

    I don't even wash my socks. (Exaggeration for humour purposes only).

    The NZ $5-bill was designed by Canada and printed here too.

    What does Te Putea mutua mean? Really nice design though. Beats the hell out of Harriet Tubman on our 20 here in the US. She looks a bit dour in the image they chose. Sentimental, politically correct and all that but still, they could have photoshopped her face a bit.

    It's the name of the New Zealand bank in the native Maori.

    They are worried about something so they have to have one in reserve?
