The Central Bank of the Bahamas released a new banknote bearing an odd denomination - $3, on 28th March. It’s the fifth entry in the country’s CRISP Evolution series. New notes of the denomination $½, $1, $10, and $20 are already in circulation. New $50 and $100 notes will be issued later.
The $3 note of Bahamas was last redesigned in 1984. The new burgundy coloured note measures 156 millimetres in length and 67 millimetres in width. It has shades of brown, red, lavender, and yellow as well.
The obverse side features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, a watermark of the queen and $3, a map of the islands of the Bahamas, denomination in words and figures, and a picture of a passion flower. The reverse design is vertical in orientation. It features sailboats at sea, denomination in words and numbers, coat of arms of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas and the text “Central Bank of The Bahamas.”
CRISP stands for Counterfeit Resistant Integrated Security Product and it’s a modern technology that’s used by several countries around the world to produce secure currency notes.
