Rwanda new 500- and 1,000-franc notes (B141a, B142a) to be introduced 11.02.2019

According to a press release dated 7 February 2019, these notes have new security features and better quality to reduce wear. The design of the front of the 500-franc note is entirely new, and the overall color has been changed to brown to help distinguish it from the 1,000-franc note.
