Guyana enhanced security 1,000-dollar note (B120a) confirmed


According to an article in the Guyana Times dated 10 February 2019, the Bank of Guyana plans to introduce a 1,000-dollar note with enhanced security features on 4 March 2019. The design is like the current note (B117), but the holographic stripe is replaced by a 6-mm wide blue RAPID security thread with the denomination and the Victoria Regia Lily, the national flower. Furthermore, the windowed security thread on the back of the existing note is replaced by a solid security thread.
