“The Central Bank of Solomon Island (CBSI) has launched the country’s new SBD$40 dollar banknote and two dollar coin on Thursday.
“Permanent Secretary of Ministry of finance and Treasury, Harry Kuma, declared the note and coin legal tender, which means people can buy with the currencies.
“The launching coincides with the country’s 40th Independence Anniversary.
“CBSI Governor, Denton Rarawa, in his official speech mentioned the improved security features of the banknote with both vertical and horizontal designs and other obscured features.
