The Bank of South Sudan (BoSS) recently issued 1,000-pound banknotes that look exactly like the existing notes but carry a slightly different name. The new name “South Sudan Pound” replaces the former “South Sudanese Pound” on both the front and back sides of the 1,000-pound denomination. The BoSS announced the change to the public on June 12—the same day the new notes were issued.

Below is a visual comparison of the old and new banknotes:

New 1,000-Pound South Sudan


Previous 1,000-Pound South Sudanese note

Both versions of the 1,000-Pound banknote are valid as legal tender. The issuance is in line with the Banking Act of 2012 as well as the Bank of South Sudan Act of 2023 (amended).
