Thursday, December 5, 2019 - 13:30

A new polymer $100 bill will be displayed on the Central Bank website at 4 pm today.

Minister of National Security, Stuart Young announced Government's plan to roll out a new $100 bill to replace the blue note at today's Post-Cabinet press briefing.

Young said the replacement 100 note will be harder to counterfeit and would also undermine the use of stored cash to fund criminal activity.

the new bill is expected to be in circulation within 14 days and not the usual 30-day period for new bills.
