United Arab Emirates issues updated new notes

The United Arab Emirates Central Bank has issued updated 50- and 100-dirham notes on 9 March 2015 with features for the blind and sight-impaired. From the Emirates News Agency:

"The banknotes will include new tactile features for the blind and sight impaired, engraved in bleed-off intaglio printing on the edge of the banknotes’ short sides. The tactile feature on the AED 100 denomination consists of two horizontal lines, centered around the middle of the right and left short sides of the note, separated by a recognisable distance.

The tactile feature on the AED 50 denomination consists of four horizontal lines next to each other in the middle of the right and left short sides of the note.

The Metallic ink surrounding the UAE emblem on the front top half of the note is replaced by multicolored shifting element for denomination AED 50.

The overall design and other specifications of the two notes are the same as in the currency notes currently in circulation."
