Vanuatu introduces new polymer series

The Central Bank of the island state of Vanuatu has introduced three new banknotes for a new polymer series according to this article in the local Daily Post. The switch to polymer has been made mainly due to the humid climate and to prevent counterfeiting. The first three notes which have been issued are the 200 vatu (themed family), 1,000 vatu (themed agriculture) and 2,000 vatu (themed flora and fauna). The notes of 500 and 5,000 vatu are planned to be issued in the next two to three years. The new series is produced by the french company Oberthur on a polymer substrate from Innovia from Australia.

I haven't been able to find pictures of the new notes yet but they will follow soon I hope.
