Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei Darussalam – To mark the auspicious event of the Golden Jubilee Accession to the Throne of His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam, Autoriti Monetari Brunei Darussalam (AMBD) issues a commemorative BND 50 Guardian™ polymer note.
Following the event, a press conference led by AMBD’s Acting Executive Director Pengiran Maslina binti Pengiran Haji Mahmud of the Currency Management Unit was held to share details on the design of the new BND 50 commemorative Guardian™ note.
“The new note is yellow in colour, signifying the royal colour. The obverse side of the note features a new portrait of His Majesty in Royal Brunei Armed Forces ceremonial uniform,” she said. “The note also shows an image of His Majesty being crowned by His Majesty’s late father, Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Muhammad Jamalul Alam, with the Jame’ ‘Asr Hassanil Bolkiah in the background.”
“The reverse side of the note features an image of His Majesty interacting with members of the public accompanied by His Royal Highness the Crown Prince; reflecting their concern and care towards the subjects.”
The large see-through window contains a clearly-defined portrait image of His Majesty with rich tonal range provided by Guardian CAMEO™. This security feature can be seen on the front and the back of the note.
