Cambodia issues new notes of 100 and 500 riels

According to the Khmer Times the National Bank of Cambodia has issued two new banknotes of 100 and 500 riels:  

"The 100 riels note depicts the King Father as a young monk on the front, the Silver Palace on the back and a Khmer statue as the watermark. The new 500 riel note will feature King Sihamoni on the front, the Kizuna bridge on the back and the Nak Loeung Bridge as the watermark. Both bridges are Japan-financed and their depiction on the banknote remarks on the good ties between Cambodia and Japan."

Update 19-01-2015: And of course there is some controversy because people feel offended...
