Nigeria new 50-naira commemorative polymer note confirmed

The Central Bank of Nigeria commemorated the nation's 50th anniversary of independence by issuing a redesigned 50-naira (US$0.35) note on 29 September 2010. The polymer note is adorned with a 50th anniversary logo and circulates in parallel with existing notes of the same denomination. The redesigned note has the anniversary logo, a strip of gold band, and a varnished message that reads “1960-2010, 50th Independence,” which can be seen when the note is tilted.
