Uruguay’s commitment to improving the quality of its currency was also recognised with its banknote celebrating the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the Central Bank of Uruguay (in 1967) winning the Best Commemorative Award.

The note has been produced on Guardian polymer – a first for the country – and has a modern style with an abstract design. It includes an innovative feature in the form of a large, eye-catching half window, which enhances both the aesthetic and functionality of the note. The beautiful design showcases creativity, technical skill, excellent integration with security features and distinct representations of the Central Bank of Uruguay’s 50th anniversary.
