Oman issues new commemorative banknote of 1 rial

The Central Bank of Oman has issued a new commemorative banknote of 1 rial on 18 November 2015 commemorating the 45th National Day. From the website: "On the occasion of the 45th National Day 2015, the Central Bank of Oman is pleased to announce to the Public the issue of a New Commemorative Banknote of R.O. 1 denomination with effect from Wednesday, 18th November 2015.

This new banknote shall be in circulation as legal tender along with the existing banknotes. Describing the technical aspects and the appearance of the newly issued RO 1 bank note, the press release from the bank indicated that the new note bears a portrait of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Said and the facsimile signature of His Majesty at the centre of the note.

In addition there’s a water mark portrait of His Majesty on the right side of the note, the National Emblem (coat of arms) at the centre, “Central Bank of Oman” in Arabic on top of the note.

Similarly, the serial numbers are seen on right and left side of the note with the denomination in Arabic on right and on left side of the note. The wording “45th National Day” in Arabic can be sighted at the right bottom of the currency note.

The Al Alam Palace is featured at the right side of the note, while the recognition feature for the blind persons can be seen on both sides of the note.

The vertical windowed security thread in two metallic colours is embossed at the left side of the note."

This note sure has interesting colors doesn't it? I really wonder what it will look like for real and at a face value of just over 2 euro or dollars this shouldn't be that difficult to get.
