Central Bank to host briefing on introduction of polymer $5, $10, $20


    At 10am on Tuesday 27th October, the Central Bank will host a media briefing on the introduction of new polymer $5, $10 and $20 notes.

    In a social media post, the bank says a stream will be available on its website, YouTube channel and Facebook page.

    These follow the $100 polymer bill first introduced in December 2019 and are consistent in design.

    Each of the bills will retain their traditional colours but will have the updated security features that come with the polymer version.

    The Central Bank has already stated that these new notes will co-circulate with existing notes as legal tender, at least until the end of 2021.

    It has also signalled its intention to introduce polymer notes of all values.
