Gambia - 20 Dalasis Polymer 2014 President Commemorative

Twenty Dalasis
Dated 2014
A new 20 Dalasis celebrating the country's 20 Years of Progress and Self-Reliance. In short, it's celebrating the country's 20 years of Presidential rule under Yahya Abdul-Azziz Jemus Junkung Jammeh, and so does his portrait on the note. President Yahya Jammeh, was a young army officer when he took over the country on 22.07.1994 following a military coup. He was then elected as President in 1996, and then re elected in 2001, 2006 and 2011. The note was launched by the President on 26.02.2015 and released into circulation on the 2.3.2015. The new note is printed by De La Rue on Safeguard polymer material. The design of this note is based on the current 25 Dalasis paper denomination, except that the portrait of a man on the last paper note has been replaced with the portrait of President Yahya Jammeh. This note replaced the current 25 Dalasis paper banknote which is still legal tender and will be withdrawn over time. The new polymer note is also printed predominately in green colour and was released on 2.3.2015. This is the first polymer note issued by Gambia. This note bears the signature of the bank governor, Mr Amadou Colley
