Algeria new 2,000-dinar note to be issued 28 April 2011

On 25 April 2011, the Bank of Algeria announced that it would issue a new 2,000-dinar (US$28) note on 28 April 2011. The note celebrates science, technology, and local development. The front of the note features a university professor teaching in an amphitheater and a group of researchers in a laboratory. The back depicts other key sectors of development in Algeria: agriculture, represented by a palm tree and an olive tree; urban, illustrated by a building; and water resources, by means of a body of water.

The greenish-blue note includes a watermark of Emir Abdelkader, the effigy of Jughurta, a security thread, and hologram plus new safety features, including an anti-copy background. Additionally, there are raised features to help the sight-impaired distinguish the denomination.
