Brunei $50 and $100 Polymer Note

The forth series of Brunei banknote consists of polymer and paper notes. Despite the polymer was first introduced in 1996 for the lower denominations (i.e. $1, $5 and $10), the paper notes for the face value of $50 and above are still circulating. It was only until 2004, the Brunei Currency Board introduced the new $50 and $100 polymer notes to replace the older version of paper notes and make a complete set of common circulating polymer notes.
Inherited from its previous polymer theme design, these $50 and $100 adopted the same theme design. The fronts of these note feature the portrait of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah and the Brunei Coat of Arms of Brunei printed in red on the far right. The backs of these notes feature the rain forest that make up the landscape of the Brunei Darussalam.
