Gibraltar has issued a new polymer £100 banknote to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Sir Joshua Hassan, Gibraltar’s first Chief Minister.
The new banknote uses De La Rue’s polymer Safeguard® substrate, and is the first time a holographic foil, namely Depth™ Image, has been used with the polymer substrate.
The hologram is visible from either side of the banknote, and includes a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
At the launch of the banknote, Chief Minister Fabian Picardo said
“We are proud to be issuing a £100 note which is at the cutting edge of banknote design and whose security features are second to none. De La Rue has worked closely with us to achieve this successful launch and we are most grateful to them.”
