Lebanon issues commemorative 50,000-livre note

The Central Bank of Lebanon has announced on 22 July 2015 it will start circulating the new 50,000-livre polymer note commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Lebanese army on 1 August 2015. 

The note is predominantly blue and shows all kinds of military themes. The front of the note depicts the motto of the army "Honor, Sacrifice, Loyalty". We also see a soldier carrying the Lebanese flag and a silhouette of two soldiers where the special ink gives the effect of a camouflage uniform.

The back of the note shows a monument to the martyrs of the Lebanese army, the silhouette of a soldier who makes a salute and the date 1945-2015.
