Gibraltar to issue new 100-pound note in 2016

Some news from Gibraltar is a nice opportunity to display their nice flag for the first time. Banknotenews reports that the tiny rock at the entrance of the Mediterranean Sea will issue a new banknote in the first half of 2016 August 2016. From banknotenews:

"The [100-pound] note will be dated 21 August 2015, the centenary of the birth of Sir Joshua Hassan. Nicknamed "Salvador" (Saviour), Sir Joshua was chief minister for a total of 22 years and is credited as being the most important architect of Gibraltar’s move towards self-determination. The design of this, the first 100-pound note ever to be printed on polymer substrate, carries a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on one side and a portrait of Sir Joshua on the other."

Here's an image of the new note and it looks pretty purple or pink. Luckily they used a better picture of the man than the one on wikipedia.

Update 31-7-2016: the latetst news is that this note will be issued in September according to the Treasury Department of Gibraltar.
