In an ad published today in the Guyana Times, the Bank of Guyana announced that on March 4 it will issue an improved banknote of 1,000 dollars (GYD1,000.5).
The new banknote keeps most of the elements of the previous banknote (GYD1,000.4), with two major changes:
In the front the holographic stripe is replaced by a RAPID® micro optic security feature.
The blue micro-optic stripe displays fluid and highly visible movement behind the national flower – the Victoria Regia Lily – which is also represented in the print on the edges of the note.
With only a slight tilt of the banknote, the bands in the RAPID feature move up and down behind the static numerals “1000” as the flower petals shimmer in blue and white.
The second change is the replacement of the windowed security thread at the back of the currency note with an embedded plastic thread, which is visible when held against the light.
The previous notes of 1996 (GYD1,000.1), 2000 (GYD1,000.2), 2005 (GYD1,000.3) and 2011 (GYD1,000.4) remain current.
