Somalia reportedly to issue new official notes in early 2017

According to a Bloomberg article dated 27 May 2016, Somalia plans to print new official banknotes that will circulate in parallel with US dollars by early 2017. The International Monetary Fund is helping Somalia print and circulate the currency, said Bashir Issa Ali, governor of Somalia’s central bank. Most Somali shillings currently in circulation were printed by warlords, not the federal government in Mogadishu.
