Mauritius issues first polymer banknotes

On 22 August 2013 the Bank of Mauritius has issued its first polymer banknotes in denominations of 25, 50 and 500 rupees as was announced in May of this year. The new notes have been printed by De la Rue and will circulate side by side with the old paper banknotes.

Here are the images of the new banknotes. The yellow lines don't belong there but because there are no official hi-res images yet, I've cut these from the information poster provided by the bank.
