Nigeria unveils commemorative 100 naira note

The Central Bank of Nigeria has, after a slight delay, unveiled a new commemorative note of 100 naira.

From the website: "The commemorative banknote has been designed and produced with the most advanced and security technology features with strong resistance to counterfeiting. It is meant to be durable, attractive and reflect Nigeria’s collective heritage and memory as a united nation.

The new banknote retains the portrait of the late sage, Chief Obafemi Awolowo on the front and raised embossed line to assist visually impaired persons in recognizing the face value. The back side incorporates Quick Recognition Code (QRC) window, which encrypts significant information that highlight Nigeria’s 100-year journey, thereby making it one of the best smart-connected paper banknote using smartphones as identity and security tool for de-encryption of information."

The new banknote will be issued to the public from 19 December 2014.
