The Central Bank of Myanmar has announced circulation of 500-kyat banknote on 19 July. With depiction of national leader Bogyoke Aung San, the size of new banknote will have 150 mm in length and 70 mm in width. Its prominent colour is red brown, and printed the ‘CENTRAL BANK OF MYANMAR’ at the top. The obverse side of the banknote depicts National Leader Bogyoke Aung San as the main portrait. Its right corner carries the 500-kyat denomination in Myanmar numbers, and its English digits in the remaining corners. The serial number lies horizontally in Myanmar numbers, and vertically in English digits, while its left side portrays the watermark of Bogyoke Aung San and a moving effect is being incorporated into the 500-kyat note security thread. At the most left and right sides are the embossed short stripes.
The reverse depicts the building of CBM with English letters ‘CENTRAL BANK OF MYANMAR’ at the top and ‘FIVE HUNDRED KYATS’ at the bottom.
The existing 500-kyat note which is in circulation will continue to be legal tender currency.—MNA (Translated by Aung Khin)
