On 12 November 2014, Nigerian President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan unveiled a new 100-naira banknote to commemorate Nigeria's 100 years of existence. Although the new note will have the same portrait of Chief Obafemi Awolowo on front as the existing note of the same denomination (CBN B26), it will have a new color scheme and increased security features, including "One Nigeria, Great Promise" in microprinting. On the back it will feature traditional dancers as well as a quickresponse code (QRC) which when scanned leads users to a website about Nigeria's history. Both notes will circulate in parallel.
