The new $10 banknote begins circulating in the Solomon Islands today.
The banknote was designed and printed in collaboration with De La Rue. The new series began circulating in 2013 with the release of the $50 followed by the $100 in 2015 and the $20 in January this year.
The theme of the new banknote family is islands’ rich cultural heritage. The design of the new $10, which continues to have a predominantly red colour scheme, includes geometric designs on the front of the note representing shoals of fish. The reverse includes images portraying four traditional forms of currency.
The key security feature of the banknote is De La Rue’s StarChrome® security thread which changes colour from red to green as the banknote is tilted.
Speaking at the launch of the new £10 banknote, the Central Bank’s Governor Denton Rarawa said:
“Our continued thanks to De La Rue as we bring our fourth new banknote into circulation”
