Default Uganda Issued New 1,000 Shillings Banknotes

Bank of Uganda is to release new bank notes of Shs1,000 denomination
with a new numbering format beginning September 1, 2009. Every bank
note in Uganda has a unique numbering printed horizontally and
vertically on the front of the bank note.

Bank of Uganda started issuing Shs1,000 bank notes in 1991. Each note
carries a unique numbering of alphabetical letters from A to Z, which
according to the BoU have all been used up therefore necessitating a
new numbering format. The numbering is not repeated.

Mr Otim explained that the only difference is the numbering format.
The old bank notes of Shs1,000 consisted of two letters and figures of
six digits making eight characters but in the new bank notes, BoU has
used only one letter and figures of seven digits bringing the
characters to eight.
