Fiji to issue notes without QEII in June 2012

According to a Radio Fiji article dated 1 March 2011, Fiji’s prime minister, Commodore Frank Bainimarama, has announced that the country will replace the 2-dollar (US$1.10) banknote with a coin, the color of the current 5-dollar (US$2.75) note will be changed from brown to green, and there will be new designs on all the other denominations, scheduled for introduction in June 2012. The new note designs replace the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II with native flora and fauna.
