Mauritius issued new 25, 50 and 500 Rupees polymer banknotes

The Bank of Mauritius issued new 25, 50, and 500 Rupee banknotes printed on De La Rue's Safeguard polymer substrate.

The new polymer banknotes have almost the same design as the paper banknotes. They contain numerous security features, inter alia, a transparent window showing the image of the dodo, numbers printed with magnetic ink which become fluorescent under ultra violet light and swing features printed in iridescent ink, which change to a different color when observed in transparency or when tilted.

The polymer banknotes will be in circulation alongside the existing paper banknotes.
