No new banknotes for Azerbaijan in 2014 (apparently)

The Armenian website Panorama reports that in 2014 Azerbaijan will issue new banknotes with a new design.

According to this news the new faces for these banknotes would be:

  • 1 manat: Uzeira Gajibekova (composer)
  • 5 manat - Nizami Ganjevi (poet)
  • 10 manat banknote - Zeinalabdin Tagiyev (millionaire and sponsor)
  • 20 manat - Molla Panakh Vagif (poet)
  • 50 manat - Yusif Mamedaliyev (chemist)
  • 100 manat - Heydar Aliyev (former president)

In an offical statement the Central Bank of Azerbaijan (CBA) has dismissed these rumours however as false. Here are pictures of the fake design:
