What is #Lunosaur?

The way people use and think about money is constantly evolving. At Luno, we believe that the natural evolution of money is unfolding right in front of our eyes. This notion is addressed in our new campaign called #Lunosaur, in that currencies may not last forever.

The #Lunosaur is our mascot for the campaign, featuring an origami dinosaur made from a bank note – a metaphor which represents the “dinosaurs” in our wallets. It is also the name of a new competition we have just launched.

To learn more about the campaign, read our blog post about how currencies aren’t forever.

I've followed the folding steps but my #Lunosaur looks a little different?

Don't worry, it also took us a few tries to get it right. We recommend having a few practice turns to get you familiar with the folding technique.

Do I have to use a banknote?

Entrants do not have to use a banknote and are free to use any piece of paper that can be folded into a #Lunosaur creation.

Isn't it illegal to deface paper money/banknotes?

If you’re using a banknote for your entry, it is not illegal to fold it as long as your #Lunosaur origami creation does not result in the banknote being damaged or destroyed. The note has to be able to fold back to its original form.
