Mongolia announces new 5,000-tögrög banknote

The Central Bank of Mongolia has announced a new 5,000-tögrög banknote for Q1 of 2019. 

The new note will be "using the latest technology elements. This new element is virtually impossible or too costly to imitate.

With the introduction of the 3-dimensional technology and the Spark Inkjet element, the Soyombo on the real currency will have a distinctive feature, which changes color with the movement, from the counterfeit currency."

The current 5,000-tögrög notes will remain valid. New notes of 10,000- and 20,000-tögrög will be issued later this year.

Tajikistan issues update versions of its banknotes

The National Bank of Tajikistan has introduced new versions of its 10-, 20-, 50-, 200- and 500-somoni notes. 

The updated notes look like the previous issues, but have a few differences: a new latent image on shield, a repositioned registration device, a new holographic stripe without laser-etched digits, a new color-changing windowed security thread and a smaller repositioned flag at the back upper right.

Iran shows new 500,000-rial note

The Central Bank of the Islamic Republic of Iran has made the design of the new 500,000-rial note public, according to the Iran Front Page. The new note has a few changes comapred to the one issued in 2014: its main color is now orange, the vignettes on the front have been repositioned and on the back we can see Mount Damavand.

One striking element of this note, is the 50 on the front. This might be an clue that Iran might lop off 4 zeroes of its banknotes. "The government had announced in 2016 it is planning to cut four zeroes off the currency, in an effort to keep up with rampant inflation that has hit the Iranian economy for decades."

Happy New Year!

From all of us at stevenbron.nl (so, just me :-)): best wishes for 2019 and happy collecting! As the first post of this new year I would like to take a look back at 2018 and mention my favorite banknote of last year and my nomination for the Banknote of the Year award: the Swiss 200-francs note.
