Both versions of the banknotes will include the symbolic date of “November 1, 2018” which is the 64th-anniversary date of the birth of the National Liberation Front founded in 1954. The watermarks will also include a portrait of Emir Abdelkader. The new notes will incorporate a holographic vertical strip that includes the alternating images of Berber king Jugurtha and that of Emir Abdelkader (1808-1883), founder of the modern Algerian state. The new state-of-the-art notes will also incorporate additional security features and gravitate in length to assist visually impaired persons to identify the notes by denomination.
It has been reported that the new series of banknotes will, in the future, feature designs that will include portraits of all the heads of state of Algeria since independence, which may include the likenesses of presidents Yamin Zeroual and Abdelaziz Bouteflika. Additional denominations in the new series will retain the watermark image of the founder of the modern Algerian state, Prince Abdul Qadir al-Jazairi, or, as he is known, Emir Abdelkader.
The current series of banknotes consisting of 100 to 2,000 dinars were introduced into circulation in 1995 with the 2,000-dinar note released in 2011. The new notes, which are scheduled for their official issue in November 2019 to coincide with the anniversary of the outbreak of the Algerian revolution, will circulate alongside the current denominations until further notice is issued by the Bank of Algeria.
