Vanuatu completes new series with 500-vatu note

The Reserve Bank of Vanuatu (RBV) has introduced the last note of the new series. This 500-vatu note is printed on polymer just like the other notes in the new series. 

From the press release: "Like the new VT5000 banknote released earlier in July, the new VT500 note will also incorporate an effective tactile feature to assist visually impaired people. The new banknote incorporates the theme of 'culture' and features the frontage of the original 'Nakamal blong ol Jifs', and other cultural activities such as sand drawing and traditional dancing. In continuation with existing practice of replaced paper notes, the new banknote will co-circulate the existing VT500 paper note as legal tenders. RBV will continue to withdraw all the replaced paper notes from public circulation until such time when the Bank decides to demonetize them."

Vanuatu’s banknotes are made by Note Printing Australia Limited, a subsidiary of the Reserve Bank of Australia.
