JM Authorizes Printing of Q200 Notes

According to an official from the Junta Monetaria, the authorizing is for the printing of one million of the new Q200 notes. The new notes contain numerous high-tech security features to prevent forgery.

The authorization is the first step in creating the new notes which should enter circulation around October or December.

Banguat has put out the RFQs to the varous international printers of paper currency and will finalize a contract in June.

Congress approved the designs for new Q200, Q500, and Q1000 notes last April but the Q200 is the most important to get into circulation.
