You might not ever encounter one, but the new Norwegian Banknotes are worthy of attention regardless. Developed using proposals from some of the country's top designers, including Snøhetta, Metric Design, and Terje Tønnessen, they unify the company's paper currency with a sea theme fitting for the country's relationship with the water. The designs are printed on cotton paper, with a literal depiction of a sea-related subject on one side and a pixelated interpretation on the other. Multiple security measures are also integrated into each design, as are a system of short raised lines designed to let the blind and visually impaired sort through the denominations. Norges Bank will begin issuing the new notes this year.
