The Central Bank of the Bahamas has issued the latest denomination from their new CRISP Evolution series, the one dollar banknote.
The Bank issued a press release yesterday announcing the release of the banknote denomination, the second of the CRISP Evolution series to be issued following the $10 banknote in September 2016.
The colour of the banknote’s design is predominantly green, as per the previous one dollar banknote. It also continues to use the same size dimensions of 156mm by 67mm, and features portraits of the famous Bahamian politician, Sir Lynden O. Pindling. The reverse of the note features a design including a Drum Major, in full regalia, leading the Royal Bahamas Police Force’s marching band.
Other security features include:
- raised intaglio print
- watermark featuring Sir Lynden O. Pindling and “$1”
- see through register pattern
- Iridescent ink illustrating a green flying owl one the note’s front, with a stripe on the reverse
- a latent image revealing the note’s denomination
