Uruguay reveals design of its commemorative note

The Banco Central del Uruguay has revealed the preliminary design of the new commemorative banknote of 50 peso which was announced last May. The note celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Central Bank. A total of 10 million notes will be issued and it will be the first polymer note in Uruguay. The final design of the note as well as the date of issue will be the 2nd half of 2018. 

The Central Bank was established on 6 July 1967 but no word yet on a date of issue. The back of the note shows a mural which is titled "Mural: Construcción Portuaria" by artist Walter Deliotti. The mural was designed in 1967, the same year the Bank was founded. A video of the presentation of the new banknote can be found here.

Update 14 September 2018: the new note has been issued today!
