Here is a set of the 2012 reprints specimen notes. This series was first introduced in 2008 with 5 notes, denominations from 5 to 100 Tala. In 2012, a reprints with new signatures were released but without the 10 and 50 Tala values. At the time of the release, a 50 Tala commemorative was also issued to celebrate the country's Golden Jubilee 50th Year of Independence. The reprint for the 50 Tala normal note was finally issued recently (2014), but still no 10 Tala 2012 yet. Here is a set of the specimen notes but without the 10 Tala denomination. The 50 and 100 Tala are still Hybrid notes. This is the first set of the reprint specimen series with the tiny control number of #001. The numbers are printed in red on the lower left hand corner. It's quite hard to see, but you should be able to spot that especially on the 20 Tala denomination. It is believe that only 500 pieces of specimen notes printed.
