So our Naija Govt yesterday, Wednesday 29, 2010, launched the redesigned N50 commemorative note and non-circulating coins (some coins are produced in 22 carat gold, others are gold plated silver.”) to mark the 50 years of Nigeria as an independent State. The new note is expected to exist side by side with the old one, while the coins will serve as souvenirs during the anniversary.
The new notes is obviously the same with the circulating N50. The only difference is the addition of the 50th anniversary logo, a gold iridescent band, and a goodwill message written in varnish.
Are these new notes necessary really?
