The Bahamas issue new 20-dollar note

The Central Bank of the Bahamas has issued a new 20-dollar note on 27 September 2018 in the new CRISP Evolution series. CRISP is an acronym for Counterfeit Resistant Integrated Security Product. The description of the new note from the press release:

"Predominantly magenta with shades of pink, green, orange, blue and yellow, the banknote measures 156 mm long and 67 mm wide bearing on the front a portrait of Sir Milo B. Butler, the series, and the signature of the Governor of the Central Bank of The Bahamas, together with the words "Central Bank of The Bahamas. These notes are legal tender under the Central Bank of The Bahamas Act 2000 for the payment of any amount Twenty Dollars". A watermark of Sir Milo B. Butler and the numeral $20, 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 bougainvillea flower in the center. The back features a likeness of the tower at Festival Place overlooking the Nassau Harbor. The numeral $20 appears in the upper left and lower right corners, while the words "Twenty Dollars" flank the Sir Sidney Poitier and Paradise Island bridges. Just below the tower is the Coat of Arms of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas along with the words "Central Bank of The Bahamas".

To coincide with the release of this banknote, and to complement its online training tool, the Central Bank will also release the first iteration of its banknote app which includes detailed tutorials on the key security features of the $20 banknote and other denominations. The app, like the online training tool, can be used to assist members of the public with identifying genuine Bahamian banknotes.
