New security features for UAE banknotes


News from the United Arab Emirates. The National AE reports: "the UAE Central Bank has announced plans that it will put into circulation newly reprinted 100 dirham and 1000 dirham banknotes with fresh security features on Saturday.

The new features include a replacement of the metallic ink surrounding the UAE emblem by multi-coloured ink on the upper half of the front side of the two bills. A multi-coloured 3mm-wide security thread with "AED100" written on the front will also replace the current silver security thread at present. A similar multi-coloured thread will appear on the back side of the 1000 dirham bill.

The Central Bank said the overall design and other specifications of the two notes will stay the same."

Below are the new banknotes. You can see the security features in more detail here for the 100 dirham and here for the 1000 dirham. More information about security features in general can be found in this article.
