Central Bank to launch $50 note

Story Created: Jun 14, 2012 at 10:50 PM ECT

Story Updated: Jun 14, 2012 at 10:50 PM ECT

Trinidad and Tobago is getting new money.

The Central Bank will launch a new $50 currency note on June 20 at the bank's main concourse in Port of Spain.

The note is being issued to commemorate Trinidad and Tobago's 50th independence anniversary, an invitation to the launch said.

The country already uses $1, $5, $10, $20 and $100 notes as well as coins as currency.

The Central Bank also recently offered for sale Diamond Jubilee coins.

Coins were minted to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's reign.

Ent it was a massive theft of 50 dollar bills & counterfeit bills in circulation, that force them to take it out of circulation

Yes i remember them, they were brown in color. i also remembered something about a german that stole or embezzled some good millions well in $50, there was also some counterfeit scandal with them, so they were discontinued.

JC...the $50-dollar bill wasn't brown, Jed, it was straight up red, just like the single......I was too young to know 'bout de counterfeit thing, but I thought they stopped circulating it because of the mass cunfusion it was causing with people mistaking one bill for the other.

Apparently, today the $50 commemorative coins went on sale at 8 a.m. at Central Bank. A lady arrived at 8.30 and was 7th in line. When she got to the counter, she was informed that they had sold out!

What kind of madness is this? I believe they were limited to a certain number per customer. So, did they only make 50 of this coins, or were they reserved or circulated to VIPs before the issue date?

Another example of elitist T&T.

Amen brother!!!!!! yuh fackin learning.

there is more ridiculous sh!t in the bag waiting tuh turn yuh totally off, trust meh you eh see nutten yet. and folks does wonder why i will never live in that place again, it's bc of the bullsh!t these ppl could put you through.

bad service, bombastic arseh@les in positions of power who have no pride in their work whatsoever, lack of excellence and no one seems to care if that's the case or not. on the other side of the coin, just absolutely exclusive, elitist and xenophobic dipped in nepotism, and the pawns just puts up with it and mosey on along like it's not happening right under their noses.

that place does drive me nuts boy.   :frustrated:

seriously though , I find it does really look red, or at least, a shade of red when yuh lookin' at it by itself, but once yuh bring de one dollar bill into view, is a different story.  :D Ah did never slip and mistake one fuh de other back in de day, though.  American money have the some colour but dize it....each of them have they own totally different design and even certain things about their shades of green is different....the $10 bill is a greyish green....

I don't know when the first one was installed but I remember an ad for Mary Anne in the early 80's, I think.  It was a Workers Bank (I think) machine.  Workers Bank along with National Commercial Bank (NCB) and Co-operative bank eventually became First Citizen's Bank (FCB).
