The Central Bank of Myanmar will issue a new 1,000-kyats banknote from 4 January 2020. From the press release by the Ministry of Information we learn that the front of the note has an image of Bogyoke Aung San.

On the front of the banknote, the picturesque of Bogyoke Aung San is printed and "1000 Kyats" in Myanmar language is inserted on the right side of the note. "K 1000" is also printed in the remaining three corners of the note. The watermark is an image of Bogyoke Aung San. The security string is inserted from top to bottom.

The back of the note has an image of the Hluttaw building, and "CENTRAL BANK OF MYANMAR" is inserted on the top of the note and "ONE THOUSAND KYATS" is seen on the lower part of the note. The existing 1,000-kyats note which is in circulation will continue to be legal tender currency.
