Dubai, July 7, 2015: The Central Bank said it will put into circulation currency notes with tactile features for the blind and visually impaired to recognise on Wednesday, July 8, 2015.

The features will be felt on notes of Dh500 and Dh5 denomination, which will keep the overall design and other specifications the same as the currency notes currently in circulation.

The notes will be reprinted with tactile features on the front of the notes, engraved in bleed-off intaglio printing on the edge of the banknotes’ short sides.

For the Dh500 note, the marking consists of a pair of three horizontal lines, separated by a recognisable distance, around the middle of the right and left short sides of the note.

As for the Dh5 note, the feature consists of one horizontal line in the middle of the right and left short sides of the note.
