Papua New Guinea new 20-kina 40th anniversary commemorative note (B153a) confirmed

According to a press release, the Bank of Papua New Guinea has issued a new 20-kina note to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the country with a special overprint of the 40th Anniversary of Papua New Guinea Independence and the National Bird of Paradise image above the Parliament House. They are physically smaller (135 x 70 mm) than the preceding issues, but otherwise the designs remain unchanged except for the addition of an Optical Variable Image (OVI) at upper right front that exhibits three transitional colors when the notes are tilted.
