Trinidad & Tobago: New $50, $1 polymer notes from February

The latest polymer notes, the $50 and $1, will be available from next month.

The notes were originally carded to come into circulation in January, but the Central Bank in two teaser images on Monday revealed they would be coming in February.

Citizens are reminded that there’s no need rush into their respective banks to exchange old notes for the new polymer ones.

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.

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

The changeover to polymer notes follows the introduction of the $100 note in December 2019.
