First look at new polymer note designs


    The Central Bank has released a first look at the new polymer note designs for other monetary denominations.

    The new banknotes are consistent in design with the $100 polymer banknote introduced in December 2019.

    The bills all retain their signature colours for each denomination.

    According to a notice posted to its website, the Central Bank expects that some of these will be available to the public from September 2020.

    While the old $100 note was demonetized and replaced completely, these new polymer notes will co-circulate with the existing notes as legal tender, at least until the end of 2021.

    The Central Bank has previously stated its intention to introduce polymer notes of all values.
