Trinidad and Tobago has issued a redesigned $50

The Central Bank of Trinidad and Tobago has issued an updated design of its award winning 50-dollar note. The new note has three updated features from the original design. One of them is the introduction of tactile features for the visually-impaired.

Because the other two new features haven't been made public by the bank there were some concerns that the notes were counterfeit. Perhaps more details will be provided in the future. 


Update 5-12-2015: the other banknotes are also getting a facelift to help the visually-impaired. The add-ons are: 

  • 1 dollar: Triangle
  • 5 dollars: Triangle inside a triangle
  • 10 dollars: Square
  • 20 dollars: Square inside a square
  • 50 dollars: Raised circle
  • 100 dollars: X
