Solomon Islands launches a new $100 banknote

The Central Bank of Solomon Islands has issued a new $100 banknote today. This note is the second denomination of the new series, following the $50 launched in September 2013. In keeping with the theme of the new series, this note uses strong images and bold colors to reflect the vibrancy of the islands.

This note features rural life, depicting particularly the coconut as a major source of income in the rural Solomon Islands. The front depicts the abstract pattern work based on a geometrical design and represents the swirling movement of shoals of fish. The back portrays rural livelihood, social and economic activities in rural Solomon Islands.
