Solomon Islands issue new 50 dollar note

The Central Bank of the Solomon Islands has issued a new banknote of 50 dollar according to this article. This is the first banknote of a new series. The Bank said the redesigned note is expected to bring a whole new dimension and sophistication in terms of design durability and security features. The note is designed and made bij De la Rue. From their website:

"On the front of the note, local basket weave designs are intended to represent the swirling movement of shoals of fish whilst indigenous fauna and flora - including an iguana, lizard and snake - are shown on the back.  The most prominent security feature is De La Rue's Optiks super wide security thread with a transparent window."

The picture below from is the only one I've found so far. What is that with Central Banks and the introduction of new notes? A picture says more than a thousand words!
