The Saudi Central Bank announced yesterday that it will issue today a new banknote of 200 riyals (SAR200.2) to commemorate the Fifth Anniversary of the launching of the “Vision 2030” the blueprint for the development of the country.
This is the first note to read “Saudi Central Bank “, the new name of the Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority since November 2020.
