New $10 Commemorative Banknote

Posted on 24/05/2019

The Central Bank of Samoa announced today the release of a new $10 polymer banknote in June 2019, to commemorate the XVI Pacific Games 2019 which has been scheduled to be held in Samoa on the 7th July 2019.

The $10 banknote will be the second polymer banknote issued in Samoa and the first carbon offset banknote created from the polymer substrate. 

Governor Ainuu-Enari said, “The new $10 Tala banknote design, celebrates the youth of Samoa and our sporting legacy.  Their stories of daily life and the realization of their sporting dreams are told through images placed on the note.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

The Governor also said, the new banknote is one of a kind for Samoa as it will have a horizontal front and a vertical back.  The security features will be easy to recognize and deter counterfeiting.  With features including the Pacific Games logo depicted as a clear window with flames color gravure that support the clear window shape.  A mask feature beside the clear window appears as a plain printed green pattern when held up to the light, the number 10 appears as well as a pattern of raised dots to help the visually impaired.

This new banknote will be circulated with the existing $10tala which will remain legal tender.
