Sri Lanka is printing commemorative notes

The Central Bank of Sri Lanka will issue special commemorative notes this year. From the Daily Mirror in Sri Lanka:

"Several denominations of new currency notes are to be issued to mark the 70th anniversary of Sri Lanka’s independence next year, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said yesterday.

Prime Minister Wickremesinghe revealed this during his visit to De La Rue Lanka Currency and Security Print (Private Ltd) in Biyagama yesterday. The company holds the rights to print currency for the Government of Sri Lanka as well as several foreign governments.

"You were denied access to the premises of this company because several new bank notes that are to be issued to mark the 70th anniversary of Sri Lanka’s independence are being printed here.""

Sri Lanka's Independence Day is celebrated on 4 February 2018 so perhaps we will see the new notes very soon.
