From the IBNS "Banknote of 2017" is:

Banknote of 2017
Nominations closed 31 January 2018

The International Bank Note Society (IBNS) announces that its voting membership has selected the Swiss National Bank to again receive its prestigious “Bank Note of the Year Award” for 2017.  With over 170 new banknotes released worldwide during 2017, almost a third were of sufficiently new design to be eligible for nomination.  In the closest vote ever the Swiss 10 Franc polymer/hybrid note narrowly edged out  runners-up from the Royal Bank of Scotland (£10 with female scientist), Canada ($10 with 4 politicians and regions), Fiji (unique $7 featuring their first Olympic gold medal and rugby “7’s” team), Norway (100 Kroner Viking long ship), and Djibouti (40 Franc whale shark). This is the fourth consecutive hybrid / polymer note to win the coveted IBNS Bank Note of the Year Award.
