The Gambia to replace current series in two steps

According to an article in The Point the Central Bank of the Gambia has announced that it will replace the current series of banknotes which has former President Yahya Jammeh on the front. After a bitter election and international pressure he finally stepped down on 21 January 2017 and has since been succeeded by Adama Barrow

For the new banknotes the Central Bank will adopt a two-step strategy. First it will reprint the previous series, the so-called 'Family Notes', which were in circulation until 2014. These notes showed portraits of a typical Gambian man, woman, boy and girl. These reprints will be entered in circulation from February 2018. 

This temporary measure will buy the Central Bank time to design and produce a completely new series which is scheduled for introduction by the end of 2018. The old notes with the face of Jammeh on them, will be gradually withdrawn from circulation: once they're in (the bank), they don't come out again and are replaced. 

These were the old Family Notes:
