    Default Crisp Note?

    A HK tabloid said, "There will be a crisp HK$500 note waiting for you."
    What does "crisp note" mean? Thank you very much.

    Hi A,

    When paper money is new, it's referred to as being crisp, not all folded and wrinkled.

    'note' is short for banknote/bill; $500 bill/banknote.
