BEIRUT: Lebanon’s Central Bank issued a new LL50,000 banknote Thursday, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of its foundation, the bank said in a statement.
There was a heavy turnout from citizens at the Central Bank’s main branch in Beirut.
Lebanon had issued a limited edition of LL50,000 banknotes in November 2013 to mark 70 years since its independence despite a spelling mistake on the commemorative currency.
The French-language face of the special issue 50,000 pound note spelled "independence" as it is written in English, rather than the French "independance."
The bank blamed the printing company for the mistake.
