The Bahamas issue new 1-dollar note

The Central Bank of the Bahamas has introduced a new 1-dollar note on 27 September 2017. The new note is part of the CRISP Evolution series. The description of the new note from the press release:

"The note is predominantly green, with shades of lilac, grey, burnt orange, and yellow, the banknote measures 156 mm long and 67 mm wide bearing on the front a portrait of Sir Lynden O. Pindling, the series, and the signature of the Governor of the Central Bank of The Bahamas, together with the words "The Central Bank of The Bahamas. These notes are legal tender under the Central Bank of The Bahamas Act 2000 for payment of any amount One Dollar".

  • A watermark of Sir Lynden O. Pindling and numeral $1, a replica map of the islands of The Bahamas, and the denominational value in words and figures appear on the left, with an image of a Lignum Vitae flower in the center. 
  • The back features a likeness of a Drum Major, in full regalia, leading the Royal Bahamas Police Force's marching band, with the trailing band members adjacent. 
  • The numeral $1 appears in the upper left and lower right corners, while the words "One Dollar" are in the upper right quadrant. 
  • Just below the Drum Major is the Coat-of-Arms of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas along with the words "Central Bank of The Bahamas".

Below images of the new note which I think is very well designed and nailed the tropical island vibe.
