BB to launch 3 new notes on historic March 7
Bangladesh Bank (BB) will introduce new bank notes of Tk 10, Tk 20 and Tk 50 denominations bearing the portrait of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, on historic March 7.
The new notes will carry the signature of BB Governor Atiur Rahman and will have synthetic fibres, a central bank press release said yesterday.
The notes will be initially issued from the BB's Motijheel office counters and later from its other offices and all commercial banks.
All the existing paper notes in circulation will also remain valid alongside the new notes.
The three new notes will have the portrait of Bangabandhu printed on their front and a photograph of the National Mausoleum on the background of the portrait.
However, the new Tk 10 notes will have Baitul Mukarram Mosque, the Tk 20 notes Shat Gombuj Mosque in Bagerhat, and Tk 50 notes Shilpacharya Jainul Abedin's famous painting “Ploughing” printed on their back.
