ECCB orders new 50-dollar banknote

The Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) has decided that a new 50-dollar banknote will be introduced honoring its late Governor Sir K. Dwight Venner. His image will be displayed as a permanent tribute to his legacy.

"The late Honourable Sir K Dwight Venner, former Governor of the ECCB, served the ECCB member countries and the wider Caribbean with distinction over a 26-year period. As a lasting tribute to his sterling contribution, the ECCB engaged the services of De La Rue, the authorised printer of its circulation banknotes, to prepare design concepts for a new $50 note bearing the image of Sir Dwight, in addition to the standard security features of the existing banknotes."

A date of issue hasn't been mentioned yet. 

The ECCB is the Central Bank for Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Anguilla.
