Bank of Guyana Celebrates 50 Years of Natl. Independence with New $50 Banknote

By De La Rue, plc….
On Thursday, May 12, 2016 the Bank of Guyana marked 50 years of Guyanese independence by launching a new $50 banknote designed and printed by De La Rue.

This brand new denomination – the first $50 ever in Guyana – has been issued to commemorate 50 years of the nation’s independence. The Bank of Guyana has played a significant role in the country’s development over the years by overseeing the financial system and taking measures to maintain monetary and financial stability. So issuing a new banknote is a fitting way to mark such a momentous occasion.

De La Rue’s Ruth Euling, Account Management Director, said “We have been involved with printing currency for Guyana for exactly 100 years this year and are honoured to be involved with this new denomination”.
