State Bank of Pakistan introduced a new 500-rupee note (B237a) on 25 January 2010. The new note bears the signature of Syed Salim Raza, SBP Governor. The new note is like B236, which was introduced in 2006, except on right front it now features the Pakistani flag of a crescent and five-pointed star in green-to-magenta OVI. Both notes will circulate in parallel.
