Paraguay issues new 20,000- and 100,000-guaraní notes


This item was previously reported, but it has recently been updated with new images and information:

On 10 December 2008, the Bank of Paraguay released into circulation revised 20,000-guarani (prefix B) and 100,000-guarani (prefix D) banknotes. The designs of the notes are similar to the preceding issues of the same denominations, but have new signatures, new dates (2007), and reworked illustrations on front and back. Both notes are protected by watermarks with electrotype denominations, as well as windowed security threads; on the higher denomination, it’s Crane’s new Motion thread. In fact, the printer imprint on both notes is “CRANE CURRENCY.” A new 2,000-guanrani note is scheduled for introduction in August or September 2009.
