Lebanon issues new note with novelty feature!

The Central Bank of Lebanon has issued a new 100,000-livres banknote on 7 December 2020. The note commemorates the 100th anniversary of Greater Lebanon

The interesting thing about this note is that it is the first banknote in the world using Cinema and Vivid security features. If you look at the video on the Cinema website, you can see how cool it is. Looking forward to see what Lebanon has done with this technique!
