New Caledonia new banknote designs approved for 2013 intro


According to an article on CaledoSphere dated 24 April 2012, under the chairmanship of Harold Martin, the government of New Caledonia has validated final designs for 500-, 1,000-, 5,000-, and 10,000-franc banknotes, though for security reasons the images have not been made public. The final designs are based upon drawings by Sophie Eugene, winner of the competition held in New Caledonia in 2008, under the previous Martin government. If the Banque de France approves, the new notes will enter circulation in 2013.
