Trinidad and Tobago - $50 Polymer New Series

Fifty Dollars
Dated 2014
Reverse
This is the first polymer note issued by the Central Bank of Trinidad and Tobago. This note was released on the 13.12.2014 celebrating the Golden Jubilee (1964-2014) of the country central bank, the Central Bank of Trinidad and Tobago. The bank was established by an Act of Parliament on the 12.12.1964. An interesting story about the $50 denomination of this tiny nation. The $50 (together with the $100) was first introduced on 6 June 1977. A shipment of the $50 was then stolen in transit to Trinidad and Tobago. This forced the government to suspense the circulation of $50 banknotes and not until 2012, it was then reintroduced by the former Bank Governor Ewart S Williams with the released of a new $50 to celebrate the country's 50th Year of Independence. A circulating version of the note was also released but without the commemorative text of the $50 commemorative note. This new polymer note bears the Governor's signature of Jwala Rambarran.
