ABU DHABI: The Central Bank of the United Arab Emirates has announced that it will put a new Dhs200 denomination currency note into circulation on Monday, reprinted with tactile marks for the blind and sight impaired.

The new tactile features will be engraved in bleed-off intaglio printing on the edge of the banknote’s short sides.

The tactile feature on the Dhs200 note consists of a pair of two horizontal lines, separated by a recognisable distance, around the middle of the right and left short sides of the note.

The silver metallic thread is replaced with a broader (3mm) multi-colour (colourshift) at the back of the note reading UAE 200.

The metallic ink surrounding the UAE emblem on the front top half of the note is also replaced by multicolored shifting element.

The overall design and other specifications of the currency note will be the same as those currently in circulation.

The currency note will be dispensed to banks in accordance with the Central Bank’s established procedures for cash withdrawal and deposit. This preliminary step represents one of the bank s progressive moves to enable sight-impaired individuals to access all banking services.
