General information: 2014 “Sixth” Issues
The sixth issue was unveiled at a celebration event on 19 May 2014, and entered circulation on 29 June 2014, the beginning of Ramadan. This series uses visual representations of nationally
significant elements and economic accomplishments that are all grounded on one unified background that is of the Kuwaiti flag.
The banknotes feature iconic and culturally significant buildings on the front while the back illustrates Kuwaits accomplishments and economic milestones throughout history.
The new banknotes were also designed with the visually impaired in mind. The banknotes
values are larger in size and the raised print aids the visually impaired in distinguishing each banknote from the other.
The sixth issue of the Kuwaiti dinar banknotes includes the most advanced security measures such as innovative printing processes, color changing features, and visual elements that become visible upon tilting the banknote. The preceding issues will circulate in parallel until such time as they are withdrawn from circulation.
On 13 May 2015, the International Association of Currency Affairs awarded the Central Bank of Kuwait the 2015 International Award for Best Banknote issue for these notes.
