Georgia will Enjoy Renewed 5 GEL Banknotes From September

From September first, the new 5 GEL banknote will be introduced into circulation alongside the existing currency.

The new money will depict the same iconic faces but will have a vastly different and more vibrant look with additional elements, Koba Gvenetadze announced.

The front side features Ivane Javakhishvili and Tbilisi State University, while on the reverse side shows Niko Pirosmani paintings, Fisherman in a Red Shirt and Kalo.

To prevent the new banknotes from counterfeiting, well studied security features were used, which are easily comprehensible for the population, satisfy the requirements and modern usage trends of quick payment devices and are reliable security features.
