The National Bank of Ukraine released the design of their new 200 UAH banknote.

According to the bank, the new banknotes will be released on 25 February.

The 200 UAH notes from 2007 and 2019 banknotes will still be in use, but old and worn-out notes can be exchanged for new ones.

“By design, it imitates new modern banknotes of 20, 100, 500 and 1000 hryvnias. The 200 UAH banknote of the new sample represents the main imagery of 2007 banknote of the same nominal,” the bank said.

The size and colour of the new banknote will remain the same as the old one.

The portrait of Lesya Ukrianka, a writer who became a symbol of Ukraine, will be depicted on the front of the banknote, and the entrance tower of Lutsk Castle on the back.

Some of the security features will be embossing and two stripes for people with visual impairments.

As of 1 October 2019, the number of 200 hryvnia notes in circulation stood at nearly 632.5 million (some 22.5% of total banknotes in circulation), the bank said.
