The Central Bank of Seychelles is set to release new coins and paper money in December 2016.

In honor of 40 years of Seychelles’ Independence, the Central Bank of Seychelles has announced that it will soon release a new series of banknotes and coins. The theme will reflect “Seychelles Unique Biodiversity – the backbone of our Economy.” These colorful notes will feature flora and fauna, and the color palette will resemble that of previous issues. The new notes are scheduled to be issued starting December 2016 and will include denominations of 25, 50, 200 and 500 Rupees. The new coinage will include 1 cent, 5 cents, 10 cents, and 25 cents, and 1, 5, and 10 Rupee coins, as well.

According to Governor Caroline Abel, “The new banknotes and coins have new and enhanced features which offer better protection against counterfeit, cater for the needs of the visually impaired and celebrate our trilingual heritage.”
