Nepal issues new 100-rupees note

The Central Bank of Nepal (Nepal Rastra Bank, NRB) has issued a new 100-rupees note on 13 June 2016. It has a new feature, a raised black dot, with allows visually impaired people to recognize the note. Another change from the old note is that now there are two rhinos on the back instead of one: a mother and a calf. This is the first banknote bearing the signature of new NRB Governor Chiranjeevi Nepal (since 22 March 2015).

The NRB has also stated that they're planning a new 1,000-rupees note with an image of two elephants on it.
