Kyrgyzstan new note family (B220a – B222a) reported for introduction on 01.07.2009

New 20-, 50-, and 100-som banknotes were introduced by the National Bank of the Kyrgyz Republic on 1 July 2009.

According to the assistant president of the Kyrgyz National Bank, Zair Chokoev, “We retained the style of our banknotes but tried to make them more convenient. Notes of the third series were too large and inconvenient to use. And we decided to reduce their size,” Zair Chokoev said. The new fourth series will slowly replace the notes of the third series.
