United Arab Emirates release new 200-dirham note

The United Arab Emirates Central Bank has issued a new note of 200 dirham, The Gulf Today announced. The new note has been reprinted with tactile marks for the blind and sight impaired.

The new tactile features will be engraved in bleed-off intaglio printing on the edge of the banknote’s short sides. The tactile feature on the Dhs200 note consists of a pair of two horizontal lines, separated by a recognisable distance, around the middle of the right and left short sides of the note. 

The silver metallic thread is replaced with a broader (3mm) multi-colour (colourshift) at the back of the note reading UAE 200. The metallic ink surrounding the UAE emblem on the front top half of the note is also replaced by multicolored shifting element. 

The overall design and other specifications of the currency note will be the same as those currently in circulation. '
