The Central Bank of the United Arab Emirates on July 22 announced that plans were afoot to introduce into circulation an updated 50 dirhams banknote.
The reprinted note will include a new security feature. The silver metallic thread currently displayed on the front of the note will be replaced with a broader (3mm wide), colour-shifting thread reading 'UAE 50'. The overall design and other specifications of the note will remain the same.
The amended banknote will enter circulation as legal tender
