According to an article in The National dated 28 October 2018 and a bank press release, the Central Bank of the United Arab Emirates intends to introduce a new 100-dirham note with improved anti-counterfeiting features on 30 October 2018, including a new green-to-blue SPARK Live feature at lower left front and a green-to-blue windowed Galaxy security thread. Furthermore, the denomination has been removed from lower right front, as has the silver foil stamp from upper right front. The notes are printed at the UAE’s first banknote printing plant in the Khalifa Industrial Zone in Abu Dhabi.
