Rwanda issues new 500 francs note

In May of this year Rwanda announced it would issue a new and improved 500 francs banknote. According to the press release of 20 September by the Central Bank it has done just that. The date of issue on the note is 1-1-2013. Other features are the new colour (blue instead of the old green), three cows on the front and four young students with computers on the back. The latter probably being a reference to the One Laptop Per Child project which has proven to be successful in Rwanda.

The new banknote will be used along with the old ones in circulation.
