Cape Verde issues second batch of new banknotes

After the first three new banknotes of 200, 1,000 and 2,000 escudos were issued in December 2014, the second batch of new notes have been issued on 2 January 2015. These are the 500 and 5,000 escudos notes.

The new 500 escudo note honours Jorge Barbosa (1902-1971), writer and a founder of the "Claridade" literary movement as well as his home island, Santiago.

The 5,000 escudo note depicts the first president of Cabo Verde Aristides Maria Pereira (president from 1975 to 1991), who died on 22 September 2011, and his native island, Boa Vista.

Sadly I have no pictures yet. Seriously: if you put out new banknotes, wouldn't you want to show them proudly on the website of your national bank??
