The Central Bank of Samoa has today released images of the limited edition 10 Tala banknote commemorating the XVI Pacific Games in Samoa.
As announced earlier the new note design celebrates the youth of Samoa and our sporting legacy. Their stories of daily life and the realization of their sporting dreams are told through images placed on the note. The 10 Tala will be the second polymer banknote to be issued in Samoa.
The new substrate and innovative security features will help to deter counterfeiting while making it easy to identify a
genuine note. The Banknote will feature a see through window depicting the Pacific Games logo, and a tactile embossed feature to assist the visually impaired, both are unique features of polymer banknotes.
