The 50 boliviano banknote has been upgraded by the Banco Central de Bolivia, the country’s central bank.
The upgraded paper banknote includes a 3mm wide colour shifting windowed security thread which changes from magenta to green when tilted. It also includes the central bank’s acronym “BCB 50″ as demetallised text.
The thread also includes anti-counterfeit level 2 ultraviolet (UV) properties, visible on both sides of the note.
According to the Bolivian central bank, the remaining denominations of the upgraded J series will become available in the “next few months”. Notes of the previous series will continue to circulate and remain legal tender.
