A new AED 100 banknote will enter into circulation later this week, according to the UAE Central Bank.

An ad posted by the Central Bank in a local newspaper stated that the banknote will be introduced on Tuesday, October 30.

According to the ad, the new notes will feature a number of new security features, including a colour-changing portion in the bottom corner of the bill that shifts from green to blue when tilted and shows a bar of light moving from top to bottom. The number ‘100’ is also included in the feature.

Additionally, the centre of the bill includes a Galaxy three-dimensional security thread, which is activated when the note is tilted.

Other features into an ‘intaglio overprint’ and the removal of the denomination value of ‘100’ at the bottom right of the bill.
