Cambodia to issue new 100,000 riel banknote

The NZweek reports that Cambodia is set to issue a new 100,000 riel banknote commemorating the 60th birthday of king Norodom Sihamoni on 14 May 2013. The news report is from 8 May 2013 so the banknote is probably already issued.

"The new bill will be officially issued in the next couple of days," Nguon Sokha, director general of the National Bank of Cambodia, told Xinhua over telephone.

A sub-decree on the issuance of the new 100,000-riel banknote was signed by Prime Minister Hun Sen on April 30. The 100,000-riel bill is the country’s highest riel value banknote.

According to its model, the bill displays the portraits of late King Father Norodom Sihanouk and Queen Mother Norodom Monineath on the obverse and the pictures of the two monarchs and their current King Norodom Sihamoni on the reverse.
