General information: 2009 Issues
On 20 February 2009, the BMA celebrated 40 years of service, and the island of Bermuda celebrated the 400th anniversary of its settlement by British explorer Sir George Somers. The BMA marked these landmark occasions by launching the first complete redesign of Bermudas banknotes since the Bermuda dollar was issued in 1970. Planning for this launch commenced in 2005, and the BMA received the permission and support of the minister of finance and the cabinet for this new design in the summer of 2007. The objectives of the launch are to update the design of the Bermuda note family, the basic design of which has been in place since 1970; to provide a distinct Bermuda design, and clearly distinguish the note family from the designs of other countries; to provide a sense of national pride and easy identification with the features by the Bermudian public; to combat counterfeiting by increasing the security features; and to issue notes that are durable in the islands tropical climate. The new banknotes were unveiled on 24 November 2008, and were introduced on 9 March 2009. The serial number prefix on the first million notes is that of a Bermuda onion. Subsequent notes will bear a conventional prefix.
