São Tomé e Príncipe issues new banknote series

As announced last year the Banco Central de Sao Tome e Principe has issued 6 new banknotes on 1 January 2018. The banknotes are of 5-, 10-, 20-, 50-, 100- and 200-dobras. All banknotes have been designed and produced by De la Rue

From the press release by De la Rue: "The new notes celebrate wildlife endemic São Tomé e Príncipe, and include innovative features to make them secure against counterfeiting.

The top four note values showcase a range of security features including De La Rue’s globally renowned Depth ™ Image Hologram and StarChrome® Colour Shift Thread.

The two lowest note values, 5 and 10 Dobras are on De La Rue’s Safeguard® polymer material, making them very durable whilst ensuring they are highly counterfeit resistant."

I think this new series is beautiful and really fits in the numismatic history of the country which has produced some beautiful banknotes in the past.
