Saudi Arabia new sig/date (2009) 50-riyal note (B133b) confirmed


Like B133a, but new date (١٤٣٠/2009) and new Governor signature (Muhammad Al-Jaser). Also, the denomination expressed in Arabic in the bars at left and right edge of the front of the note has been slightly modified. In the first issue of this note, the trailing zero was so small that it blended in with the tiny boxes in the background (above, left), but the new variety has a larger zero which stands out better (above, right).
