Bhutan has released a commemorative note

This news slipped by me I'm afraid. The Royal Monetary Authority of Bhutan has released a commemorative banknote of 1,000-ngultrum on 21 September 2016 to celebrate the birth of His Royal Highness The Gyalsey, Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck. He was born on 5 February 2016 and is the first child and heir apparent of King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck.

From the press release: "The Banknote bears the Commemorative message “Celebrating the Birth of The Gyalsey, February 5, 2016” on the Obverse and the message “Birth of the Prince of Bhutan” on the Reverse side. The note bears the prefix “W” to mark the reign of the Wangchuck Dynasty. The note measures 175mm x 60mm, with the security thread enhanced to 4.0mm wide rolling star window thread with clear text. The note bears the signature of Governor, Dasho Penjore. The colour scheme and all other features of the commemorative banknote are the same as the Series 2008 Nu.1000 notes. The RMA has printed 3,420,000 pieces of the commemorative banknote through Giesecke & Devrient.
