A shipment of the new two Rufiyaa coin has been brought to Maldives.
Maldives Monetary Authority (MMA) said they received the new shipment on Monday and has placed it in storage.
A shipment was also brought two months ago, and MMA has been working on circulating the new coins sometime this year.
The new MVR 5 banknote was introduced in May, and is set to go into circulation later this year.
It was designed by Abdulla Nashaath, the artist behind the “Ran Dhihafaheh” note series which has been in circulation since last year.
Randhiha Faheh consists of new designs for the existing 10 Rufiyaa, 20 Rufiyaa, 50 Rufiyaa, 100 Rufiyaa and 500 Rufiyaa notes and the new 1,000 Rufiyaa note.
