Images of new Libyan banknotes are NOT correct

Well, here’s a surprise nobody could see coming (yes, I’m using irony here). 

An adviser to Libya’s Central Bank has said that although the Central Bank has worked for quite a while to issue a new paper currency, “the new currency had not been issued yet”. He said that images of the new currency published on social networking sites are not correct. He also indicated that the new currency would be issued at the end of the year, and will be traded in the market early in 2013.

I already wrote about this upcoming issue in this post in which I noted that the circulating images differ from the ones being shown in the video. I’ll still put my money on the ‘video notes’.

Update 8 January 2013: It appears like I was wrong with my predicition. Al Watan has published pictures of the new currency and they show the pictures which actually HAVE been been circulating in the social media. This publication has been copied by the MRI Bankers' Guide which gives the claim a lot of credibility.

The suspense is killing me! Just publish the official press release already...
