The UAE Central Bank unveiled on Sunday the new Dh100 banknote that will enter into circulation this week. The new currency bill has been reprinted with new security features, which can all be found on the front side.
The central bank said the new currency note will be put in circulation as legal tender, along with the existing Dh100 notes currently in circulation.
The new note includes a colour changing security feature, which is printed at the left-hand bottom corner on the front side of the note.
When the note is tilted, the colour of the note shifts from green to blue and also shows a bar or light moving from top to bottom.
In addition, the existing colour shifting thread has been changed with a new advanced three-dimensional security thread.
The central bank said original silver filigree foil has been removed. Also, the “100” denomination value on the bottom right side of the note has been removed.
The apex bank warned UAE residents against the circulation of fake banknotes. In May 2017, authorities seized counterfeit money amounting to $20 million in Ajman.
