The new banknote has a modern and colorful design that commemorates the 200 years of national independence. On the obverse side of the note, the document of Independence is seen on the left side, on the right a book and a flag with the word ‘education’ in the center.
On the reverse side of the note, the image of the banana river can be seen in the background, with the national birds- the Macaws- flying in the front. However, BCH hasn’t confirmed if this is the final design as the new note will enter circulation only by 2021.
BCH has announced 2021 as the year when 200 lempiras will be officially introduced into circulation.
