On the grounds of national security the Cabinet has decided to replace the existing TT100 dollar bill with a new one which will have additional security features and is designed to assist the visually impaired.

The newly designed note will be printed on polymer paper.

The new note is part of a national security measure which will assist in the fight against corruption, money laundering, tax evasion and counterfeiting.

At 4:00 p.m. today the Central Bank of Trinidad and Tobago released and published on its website additional information on the new TT 100 dollar note.
