The central bank will also release commemorative gold and silver coins worth Tk100


Bangladesh Bank is set to launch regular currency notes of Tk200 and commemorative gold and silver coins worth Tk100 on the occasion of birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman on March 17.

The central bank’s initiative is to mark the historic moment, said a top official of the bank.

“We have taken this initiative as part of commemoration of the birth centenary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman,” Sirajul Islam, executive director and spokesman of Bangladesh Bank, told UNB.

He said 1,050 gold coins of Tk100 and 5,000 silver coins of similar value will be released.

Additionally, Tk200 currency notes will also come into the market to mark the occasion. But the number of Tk200 notes to be released is yet to be decided, he added.

He, however, did not give any detail of the new commemorative notes.

At present, there are regular currency notes of Tk1, Tk2, Tk5, Tk10, Tk20, Tk50, Tk100, Tk500 and Tk1000 are available in the market, which were released on different occasions. Their designs were changed several times as well.

Earlier, the Bangladesh Bank also introduced a Tk40 note to commemorate the "40th Victory Anniversary of Bangladesh" in 2011.

The Tk40 commemorative note featured a portrait of the Father of the Nation and the National Martyrs’ Memorial in Savar in the front, and six armed men on the back.

Bangladesh Bank introduced a Tk60 note to commemorate "60 years of National Movement" on February 15, 2012, while it issued a Tk25 note to commemorate the 25th anniversary (silver jubilee) of the Security Printing Corporation (Bangladesh) Ltd on January 26, 2013.

On July 8, 2013, Bangladesh Bank issued a Tk100 note to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Bangladesh National Museum.
