Aruba new banknote family reported for June 2019 introduction

According to a press release dated 12 April 2019, the Centrale Bank van Aruba confirmed that it is “working on a project to issue a new series of florin banknotes to replace the current series. The new series florin banknotes will have a complete new design and contain the latest security features. To realize this important project the CBA has worked closely with local artists, local and international experts, and the internationally renowned banknote producer Crane Currency, and thereby meet as much as possible the high international standards. On May 2, 2019 the CBA will inform the Aruban public about the new series of banknotes in order to prepare for its introduction, which will take place during the month of June 2019.”

Aruba new date (01.07.2008) notes confirmed

Centrale Bank van Aruba has issued 10-, 25-, 50-, and 100-florin notes dated 1 juli 2008 with the new signature combination of Jeanette R. Semeleer as DIRECTEUR and Hassanali Mehran as PRESIDENT. Aside from the date and signature, everything else about the notes appears unchanged from the preceding issues of 2003, except the demetalized text on the windowed security thread is slightly different.

The 500-florin denomination was apparently not updated, but I am awaiting confirmation from the central bank.
