Gibraltar reveals new 100-pound commemorative note

As previously announced Gibraltar will issue a commemorative 100-pound banknote honouring Sir Joshua Hassan in September. The final design has now been revealed to the world and I must say, it looks pretty nice.

From Your Gibraltar TV: "The new polymer banknotes have been produced by De La Rue and printed on Safeguard® substrate. The design will be similar to the existing paper banknote but with a large clear window showing a hologram which can be seen from both the front and back of the note and which will be highly reflective, showing images of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the letter G for Gibraltar.

Using Advanced Image Plane holography, the hologram on the note will offer high levels of security against counterfeiting whilst simultaneously showcasing all the clarity, colour, movement and true depth achievable on a polymer substrate."

The new note will be issued in September 2016.
