a new note スリランカの新紙幣



A new thousand rupees note has arrived. Do you know which is the newest one? The above ones are the newest and the below ones are the previous notes. When we saw them for the first time today, we thought it must be a foreign currency. ;P I saw some news that there was a 1000 rupees coin, too. Now the most expensive note in Sri Lanka is a two thousand rupees note. Sometimes I think if there was a 10,000 rupees note here because of cost inflation.

新しい1000ルピー札がスリランカに登場しました。最初、お客様から頂いた時、「どこか別の国の紙幣?」と思いました。
スリランカの紙幣の最高額は現在2000ルピーです。物価がどんどん上がっていくので、ときどき、一万ルピー札があればなあと思う時があります。でも、1000ルピーのコインもあると聞いて、1万ルピー分のコインを持ち歩くのは大変だなあと思いました。

It seems Rajapaska Kingdom has come. If someone else would be chosen as the President in the future, this design might be changed to him or her. There are very few notes showing live President or Prime Minister in the world, aren't there ?

Yes, it won't happen in Japan since Prime Minister would be changed often. :>
And I heard it was released for commemoring the war has come to an end.

新札とは。やはり、高額紙幣が欲しいですね。
単に大統領が自分の絵入りの紙幣が作りたかったんでしょうね。

そうですね。地元の人には結構人気ですよ。(笑)
発行数が限られるだろうという地元の人の見地があって、使わず取っておいている感じがします。
