Circulated $20 as per images but still crisp and clean.

The fourth series was issued in 1981, largely as a result of a change in printer.
Previously the Reserve Bank of New Zealand notes had been printed by Thomas De La Rue and Company of London.

In 1979 the Reserve Bank put the next year's note order out to international tender. The contract went to Bradbury Wilkinson and Company (NZ) Ltd who had recently built a note printing plant in Whangarei.


The change of printer presented the opportunity for a re-design of the notes because of the necessity for new plates to be engraved. The most obvious change was an updated portrait of the Queen.
Moving into the 1980s, it became apparent that there was a need for a note between the $20 and the $100. A $50 note was introduced at the end of 1983.
