The Central Bank of Trinidad & Tobago to launch further denominations on SAFEGUARD®


The Central Bank of Trinidad & Tobago announced the new $5, $10 and $20 denominations on De La Rue’s SAFEGUARD® polymer substrate will enter circulation on 2nd November.

The design of the new polymer notes is consistent with the new $100 and retains familiar themes from the previous cotton series for ease of public recognition. Each denomination contains a distinctly shaped embossed tactile feature, unique to polymer banknotes, to help the visually impaired distinguish between denominations. Strong colour differentiation between each denomination and the use of bold, bright numerals further support those with impaired vision.
