Banque du Liban will issue on December 7 a new banknote of 100,000 livres (LBP100,000.6) commemorative of the Centennial of the Creation of Grand Liban (Greater Lebanon).
At the end of World War I the remains of the Ottoman Empire were occupied by the French and British armies, and in 1 September 1920 Grand Liban, which would later split into Lebanon and Syria, was converted into a country under mandate of the League of Nations and the protectorate of France.
The new banknote is printed on polymer substrate, is of the same size, 146 x 82mm, as the current notes of same value, and is of olive green color.
