Indonesia celebrates 75 years of independence

The Bank Indonesia has issued a new 75,000-rupiah banknote commemorating 75 years of independence. Independence from my own country, The Netherlands, that is. So this banknote has more meaning to me than other commemorative notes. 

And a bonus: the note looks great!

Poland announces 20-zlotych commemorative note

The Narodowi Bank Polski (National Bank of Poland) will start selling a new 20-zlotych commemorative note from 11 August 2020. The note commemorates the Battle of Warsaw. The Battle of Warsaw was a decisive episode of the war against the Bolsheviks. 

The front of the banknote depicts Józef Pilsudski. The skyline of Warsaw is visible in the background. The back of the note presents the central fragment of Jerzy Kossak’s painting "The Miracle on the Vistula" under the Polish national colours. It depicts a symbolic scene of chaplain Ignacy Skorupka leading soldiers of the volunteer military formations to attack. 

To be honest, I think the design is pretty ugly and the note as a whole a monstrosity. But that's just my opinion.
