Sao Tome and Principe new 5-, 10-, and 200-dobra notes reported for introduction in 2020

According to a TélaNón article dated 27 November 2019, the Banco Central de São Tomé e Príncipe and De La Rue met to discuss replacing the defective 200-dobra note of 2016, which had been removed from circulation due to security flaws. Furthermore, the 5- and 10-dobra notes printed on polymer could not withstand the hot, humid climate and will be replaced with new notes printed on paper with better security features and durability. The new notes are expected to be introduced in the first half of 2020.
