The Banco Central de São Tomé e Príncipe unveiled new banknote series to celebrate the bank's 25th anniversary. The notes were designed and printed by De La Rue to showcase wildlife that typified São Tomé e Príncipe.
The four largest denominations include a range of security features such as Depth Image holograms and StarChrome Color Shift Thread. The two smallest denominations are printed on Safeguard polymer substrate.
The new notes are expected to be introduced on January 1, 2018.
