More details of the new series, from Banknote News:

____

Banky Foiben'i Madagasikara intends to introduce a new family of notes with the following denominations: 100, 200, 500, 1,000, 2,000, 5,000, 10,000, and 20,000 ariary. The four larger denominations will be issued in July 2017, followed by the four smaller denominations in September 2017. The theme will remain “Madagascar and its Riches,” including economic activities, biodiversity, culture, and tourist sites. All the notes will have tactile geometric features for the sight-impaired, zebu head watermarks, security threads, and iridescent stripes.

According to a decree, the 100-ariary note depicts the Cathédrale d’Ambozontany.

The olive green 2,000-ariary note depicts a lemur on front, and a tropical pitcher plant on back.

The red 5,000-ariary note depicts a waterfall in Ranomafana Park on front, and a humpback whale on back.

The brown-yellow 10,000-ariary note measures 144 x 78 mm and depicts the port of Ehoala on front, and Valiha and Zafimaniry carved wooden objects on back.

The blue 20,000-ariary note measures 149 x 81 mm and depicts the nickel processing plant at Ambatovy on front, and vanilla, rice, and lychees on back.
