15000 Riel Commemorative Banknote, issued October 2019
On the 29th of October of 2019 the National Bank of Cambodia put into circulation a 15000 Riel banknote to mark the 15th anniversary of the coronation of His Majesty Norodom Sihamoni, the King of Cambodia, and symbolising the importance of the King, as the focal point of the whole Royal Household, for the reborn unity of the Cambodian people, recently emerged after decades of civil war and unrest.
The design of the banknote was carried out entirely by the talented team at the Banknote Printing Works of the National Bank of Cambodia, a major technological milestone for the Cambodian banknote industry. In keeping with the importance and sophistication of the note, it is printed on Landqart’s Durasafe® substrate – the first time it has been used in Cambodia – and as such includes a 4mm-wide security thread that can be viewed in the half windows, and an ornamentally shaped see-through window adorned with an inkless intaglio-embossed floral pattern. In another first (in Cambodia and the world), the banknote has a TRILUMIC® holographic foil, which, like the security thread, was supplied by Hueck Folien.
Landqart is honoured to have collaborated with the Banknote Factory of the National Bank of Cambodia in the preparation of this banknote, and we take the opportunity to congratulate His Majesty on the 15th anniversary of his coronation.
