Make our money reflect Aotearoa

We are calling on the Reserve Bank to replace the British monarch in the next round of planning and producing coins and notes for our country with an image that better represents our country, Aotearoa.

Why is this important?

We have an opportunity to honour the people who have contributed to our nation and showcase more symbols that truly represent us as Aotearoa.

We have so many people in our country's history that have paved the way for us to be where we are today and how we will be in the future. This is in opportunity to acknowledge and recognise their hard work.

We also have so many symbols that are important to us. From trees like the pōhutukawa to plants like harakeke to birds like the huia, all of these and so much more reflect who we are as a country.

Our currency is one of the most public and identifiable things in our country, let’s make our money reflect Aotearoa!

Right now, our coins and $20 note features the British monarchy who will never live in our country, let alone represent us.

This is why we are calling on the Reserve Bank to replace the British monarchy references in the next redesign of coins and notes for our country with people and symbols that represent the country we love.
