The Central Bank of The Bahamas has issued an updated 50 dollar note with RAPID® security thread as the primary security feature. The note is printed on Durasafe, a paper-polymer-paper composite substrate produced by Swiss company Landqart.
The banknote was printed by the Canadian Banknote Company and is the first implementation of Crane Currency’s RAPID security thread with this substrate.
Beginning in 2013, The Central Bank of The Bahamas embarked on program to modernize its banknotes, the CRISP Evolution. Since then the $50 banknote is the sixth issuance of the Bank’s new and modernized banknotes.
