The award recognizes “outstanding achievements in the design, technical sophistication and security of a banknote or banknote series”. The banknote won the award for its “brilliant, beautiful and dynamic security features which correspond perfectly with each other and encourage the public to authenticate the note at first sight.” The paper-embedded security features – the thread, the foil and the watermark – were supplied by Louisenthal.
