Malawi to issue new note family with blind recognition features in August 2014

According to a press release dated June 2014, in August the Reserve Bank of Malawi will introduce a family of notes similar to the existing issues (RBM B50-B55), but with enhanced blind recognition features. Furthermore, the color of the 50-kwacha note will be changed from light blue to light green to differentiate it from the 200-kwacha notes. Curiously, the 200-kwacha note is not listed as a denomination expected to have the new Braille features.
