The Central Bank of Uruguay has issued the Series G 100-peso and Series E 1,000-peso banknotes, now circulating within the country.
The upgraded Uruguay banknotes have a similar design as their predecessors and continue to be printed on cotton paper substrate but contain upgraded security features including optically variable ink, used to depict a map of the country seen on the front of the note.
Other key features include windowed threads – a metallic thread is used for the 100 peso note whilst the 1,000 includes a holographic thread. The banknotes also include a tactile feature to enable the visually impaired to identify each note’s denomination.
The upgraded banknotes reportedly began circulating on the 24 January 2018.
The Series G 100-peso banknote is printed by the Casa de Moneda de Chile whilst the Series E 1,000-peso banknote is printed by Oberthur Fiduciaire.
