General information: 1970 Issues
In 1970, Banque Centrale dAlgérie replaced the 1964 issues, although they were not officially withdrawn until 31 December 1998. The new notes were denominated in 5, 10, 100, and 500 dinars. The new series eliminated the 50-dinar note and introduced a 500-dinar note for the first time. These notes reflect a modernizing Algeria by depicting advances in technology and agriculture while maintaining the themes of Algerian flora, fauna, and architecture.
