The Queen has been moved as the main image on Bermuda's bank notes following the first redesign of the Island’s currency for more than 30 years.

The new notes were unveiled by the Bermuda Monetary Authority (BMA) this morning and the designs “incorporate a distinct Bermudian look with the use of bold colours, as well as local scenes, flora and fauna”.

According to the BMA the new banknotes also feature “some of the most up-to-date anti-counterfeiting technology”.

It is the first redesign of Bermuda’s note currency since the Bermuda dollar was issued in 1970.

The notes will be available for the public to use early in 2009 — the 400th anniversary of Bermuda’s settlement by Sir George Somers and the 40th anniversary of the BMA.

The Queen will now feature on the front left corner of each note
