Honduras new notes with Braille and raised bars (B344a – B353a) confirmed

According to a press release dated 13 November 2013, the Banco Central de Honduras has unveiled revisions to its entire family of banknotes which now include embossed Braille dots and high-relief vertical bars at top and bottom center, both intended to help the sight impaired identify the different denominations by feel. The new notes are all dated 1 DE MARZO DE 2012. Existing notes will continue to circulate in parallel.

Curiously, the 20-lempira note which had previously been issued on polymer (B340) in 2010 has reverted to paper substrate.
