Maldives announces commemorative note for 2015

The Maldives Monetary Authority has, according to HaveeruOnline, announced that 28 designers have been selected to submit their proposals for a new commemorative banknote due to be issued in 2015 to commemorate Maldives’ 50th year of Independence.

"The central bank said on Friday that with the 28 proposals, it will begin its evaluation.

According to the MMA, the best proposals will be shortlisted and the Authority will contact the shortlisted artists by the 11th of January. The artists will be asked to produce a 15-minute presentation and will go through an interview on the 15th. The top three artists will be chosen to design the bank notes by the 19th.

The artists will have to present a final design by the 17th of February. MMA said that all dates – other than the deadline – is subject to change but that the artists will be given due notification of said changes."

An exact date of issue is not mentioned but the Maldives gained independence on 26 July 1965 so we can expect the new note around July I think.
