Solomon Islands announces new polymer 5-dollar note

The Central Bank of the Solomon Islands has announced that the new polymer 5-dollar note will be issued on 2 May 2019 "in conjunction with the United Nations World Tuna Day".

"The design features a yellowfin tuna and a traditional fishing hook on the front of the note to signal the importance of sustainability. On the reverse side, a traditional spearfishing scene that highlights the need to preserve and promote community activity as we move into the future is depicted. The theme for the new $5 dollar note focuses on creating a sustainable and responsible fishing industry to provide long-term economic security for the nation, as well as the importance of community and social cohesion."
