New Zealand Reserve Bank (RBNZ) has just unveiled a new series of polymer notes, to be released in 2015-2016. Preliminary designs of the notes are shown on this site: brightermoney.co.nz. The notes have been designed by Canadian Bank Note and will be printed by the same company. The first notes to be issued will be $5 and $10 in October 2015, followed by $20, $50 and $100 in April 2016.

The main security feature will be the same as on the Canadian polymer notes: Latitude holograms in a large clear window. The notes will also have what appears to be golden Spark patches, in the shape of birds. These are very beautiful notes, and I really like the designs. Of course, there is always the possibility that the actual notes will not be as vibrant, similarly to what happened with the Canadian notes.

Nice looking notes. It's not surprising that CBN is the designer, they look a lot like our notes. Especially the $20.

It certainly looks like the exact same colours from our notes... like the same hue of purple, green, blue and red...

I really like the notes though....

A side question.. what's the best way other than ebay to get a set of current foreign notes in UNC condition?

You can check out online dealers, but their prices are almost always higher than on eBay. You can also try getting in touch with collectors in respective countries. To me, eBay is the best place to buy Unc notes.
