The International Bank Note Society (IBNS) has chosen Bermuda’s $2 note, issued in 2009, as the ‘Banknote of 2009’. Each year the IBNS recognizes an exceptional banknote issued as the ‘Banknote of the year’.
The award-winning banknote portrays the Bermuda Bluebird (Sialia sialis) on the obverse and the Dockyard Clock Tower and Statue of Neptune on the reverse. This 2 dollar note has a very appealing combination of colours and this new series of notes released in 2009 are a first major re-design of Bermudian banknotes for 40 years. Furthermore the notes are vertical much different than the old horizontal banknotes!
