Honduras to Release New 200-Lempira Note for September Bicentennial

The Central Bank of Honduras said in mid-June that a new 200-lempira note will be placed into circulation in September.

The note, worth $8.34 in U.S. funds, is a new denomination, joining the 1-, 2-, 5-, 10-, 20-, 50-, 100- and 500-lempira notes.

It was announced in March of this year that the new note would commemorate the bicentennial of Honduran independence from Spain Sept. 15, 1821.

The president of the bank, Wilfredo Cerrato, described the design as having three themes, with one motif alluding to the bicentennial of Honduras, and the others to the promotion of education and the conservation of flora and fauna. The first theme is reflected on the face of the note, with the latter two on the back. Twenty million examples will be printed.
