Trinidad & Tobago: New polymer notes available from next week

The new polymer $5, $10 and $20 notes will be in circulation from as early as next week.

The Central Bank in a virtual launch today confirmed the notes will be issued to commercial banks from next Monday.

The new notes will co-circulate with the existing cotton-based notes.

All notes currently in circulation will continue to be legal tender until at least the end of 2021, when a decision will be taken on the demonetisation of the cotton-based notes.

The new polymer notes have improved durability, strong security and defined tactile features which allow for improved access for the visually impaired.
