Sri Lanka Central Bank to issue commemorative Rs. 500 note to mark CHOGM

Fri, Nov 8, 2013, 09:07 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 08, Colombo: The Central Bank of Sri Lanka will issue a commemorative note in the denomination of Rupees 500 to mark the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Sri Lanka from 15th to 17th November.

This is the 3rd Commemorative note that is being issued, by the Central Bank.

The size, color and the security features of the Commemorative note are same as in the current circulating Rs. 500 note in the same series except for few changes, the Central Bank said.

The Governor of the Central Bank Ajith Nivard Cabraal will issue the first note to the President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

The CHOGM 2013 Sri Lanka logo in single purple color will appear on the front of the note at the lower left corner replacing the butterfly of the currently circulating Rs. 500 note.

A security feature of an additional watermark has been included by adding a design around the electrotype vertical numeral 500, to differentiate the CHOGM commemorative note from the currently circulating Rs.500 note dated 2013.11.15.

The Bank will issue 5 million notes of the commemorative Rs. 500.
