This is the third denomination of the current series, which was first introduced in 2013. This new $20 note was launched on 20.01.2017 and released to the public on 23.01.2017. Unlike the previous two issues, this note is not printed on hybrid materials. The signatures for this new note are not the same as those two notes issued earlier. The Governor is still the same (Denton Hehenoro Rarawa - appointed since 22.08.2008) but the new Permanent Secretary of the Minister of Finance is Harry Kuma. This note is printed by DLR, which has been printing banknotes for the country for 100 years.
It is believed that only 3 notes were printed with the year date of (20)14, and the 20 kina was one of them. The other 2 denominations were 2 and 100 kina. The note posted below is a specimen piece. This is the only specimen piece with (20)14 I have in my collection.
A full set of three 2-uncut sheets of polymer notes of Vanuatu Vt200, Vt1000 and Vt2000 all issued in 2014. I have no information on the quantity issued. Perhaps the quantity is the same as the 2010 VT10000 Commemorative polymer note issued in 2010 (ceased circulation in 2013), but then I have no info on that one either. I am not sure other uncut sheets were also issued, but so far none has been reported apart from these. The first prefix for this series is AA14 but again I am not sure if these are also issued with AA prefix. Even the set I have below is showing the prefixes are not in sequence ie AD, AF and AE. The 3 sheets I have here are all with matching numbers.
