United Arab Emirates issue new 100-dirham note

The United Arab Emirates Central Bank has issued a new 100-dirham banknote on 30 October 2018.

The overall design and other specifications of the currency note remain the same as the current currency notes in circulation. The new banknote has lots of new security features, such as a SPARK® Live colour changing security feature printed at the left-hand bottom corner on the front of the note. When the note is tilted, the colour shifts from green to blue and shows a bar of light moving from top to bottom. The numeral 100 is integrated in this feature.

Also, the existing colour shifting security thread has been replaced with an advanced Galaxy three dimensional security thread. The original silver filigree foil has been removed and replaced with intaglio overprint at the front upper right-hand side of the currency note. The denomination value "100" at the right-hand bottom corner on the front of the currency note has been removed.

The note has been put in circulation along with the currency notes currently in circulation. The notes have been printed at the banknote printing plant in the Khalifa Industrial Zone in Abu Dhabi.
