Guinea introduces 20,000-franc note

Besides the 5,000-franc note which will be issued later this month, the Central Bank of Guinea has also introduced a new 20,000-franc note in May 2015. The new note will be the biggest denomination in the country being twice the amount of the previous largest 10,000-franc denomination. 

The note shows Guinea is modern and open to the world symbolized by two pigeons taking flight. The front also shows a Guinean woman honouring their role in the national economy. The back shows a hydroelectric dam in Kaleta. The note is coated with a protective varnish to extend its lifespan and has markings for the sight impaired.

Looks rather nice doesn't it?
