Central Bank to remove Jammeh’s portrait from Gambian Money

Wednesday, June 13, 2018

The Central Bank of The Gambia has announced that efforts are in advanced stage for the introduction of new family of bank notes in 2019 without the portrait of the former President Yahya A. J. J. Jammeh.

The Central of The Gambia has reprinted only D50 and D100 of 2012 family of Gambian bank notes as a temporary measure to meet the currency demand while the new family of notes is being printed, according to a media dispatch.

“The only new feature on these notes is the signatures of the new Governor and the new First Deputy Governor. These will be in circulation side-by-side with all previously issued Gambian bank notes.”
