The Central Bank of Bolivia has issued and circulated the new 50 boliviano banknote, the third in the latest First Family of Tickets (PFB) of the Plurinational State [translated] following the issuance of the 10 and 20 boliviano banknotes earlier this year.
As with all the denominations of the new banknote series, each denomination maintains the same colour scheme and size dimensions of their predecessors. The BS.50 is 140mm by 7mm.
Key security features include a 4mm wide windowed colour changing security thread, reportedly Picture Thread™, shown on the front of the banknote, and an image of the Andean flamingo is displayed using optically variable ink, reportedly SPARK® Live Rolling Bar, shown on the reverse.
Other features include watermarks, see through register mark and UV features including UV security fibres. The design also includes two blocks of six short tactile lines aimed at enabling the visually impaired to identify the banknote’s denomination.
