Libya new 10-dinar note (B542a) confirmed


This post on Facebook includes images of Libya’s new 5- and 10-dinar notes. Both denominations have been confirmed already, but curiously the images show two different varieties of the 10-dinar note. The upper one (B541a) printed by De La Rue has prefix 7 and the bank’s name on back is rendered with initial-capitals, whereas the lower one (B542a) printed by Oberthur has prefix 1 and the bank’s name in all-caps. The square security feature at upper right front is also different, as are the windowed security threads, and the Oberthur issue has a crecent moon and star at upper left front. Finally, the De La Rue issue is undated.
