Guinea announces new 20,000-francs note

The Central Bank of the Republic of Guinea (BCRG) has announced that a new banknote of 20,000 Guinean francs will be issued on 11 May 2015. The design of the new note emphasizes the modernity and openness of Guinea to the world which is symbolized by two pigeons taking flight.

On the front, the new note shows Guinean women in dedication to the central role they play in the economic life of Guinea. On the back, the hydroelectric dam Kaléta shows the desire of Guinea to become energy self-sufficient. The banknote will be covered with a protective layer on the front and back, making it more resistant and more durable. Also markings for the visually impaired will be added to the note. 

Update 20-05-2015: has updated images of the new note.
