Central Bank to launch $50 note

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.
