Hong Kong new 1,000-dollar notes confirmed

On 20 July 2010, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority announced it will begin producing banknotes with Braille and embossed lines for benefit of the visually impaired. The new notes will be phased in over the next two years and will feature Braille at the bottom left corner of each note, together with embossed lines that correspond with each notes value. The HK$1,000 (US$129) notes were unveiled at the press conference, and were put into circulation 7 December 2010.
