Zambia and UAE introduce notes with tactile marks

Good news for the blind and visually impaired people from Zambia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Both countries have announced that they will issue banknotes with so-called tactile marks (which is something else than the more famous braille, see for instance these examples of the euro).

Today the UAE introduces new notes of 5- and 500-dirham which have the same aid-system as the recently introduced 50- and 100-dirham notes.

Zambia will introduce its new notes at the end of 2015. No specific date has been given yet.
