Papua New Guinea issues two commemorative notes

The Bank of Papua New Guinea has announced on 21 May 2015 that new 10- and 20-kina notes have been issued. Both notes are commemorative banknotes and have been resized from the original 10- and 20-kina notes.

From the press release:

K10 Commemorative Banknote

The K10 banknote has been resized as part of the banknote reform process undertaken by the Bank to standardize the size of Papua New Guinea banknotes.  All other features of the banknote such as the colour and all the design elements of the existing new series banknote remain the same, however, the K10 banknote incorporates a special overprint of the XV Pacific Games logo in yellow, red, green, black and blue in colour located above the Parliament House.

K20 Commemorative Banknote

The K20 banknote has been resized as part of the banknote reform process undertaken by the Bank to standardize the size of Papua New Guinea banknotes.  All other features of the banknote such as the colour and all the design elements of the existing new series banknote remain the same, however, the K20 banknote incorporates a special overprint of the 40th Anniversary of Papua New Guinea Independence and the National Bird of Paradise image above the Parliament House.
