The Sixth and Seventh Banknote Issues of Bangladesh

Figure 18

For the last variety of the 50-taka note, the intaglio plates have been redrawn and, while it is difficult to identify the changes on the front of the note, the changes on the back are quite distinct. Most noticeable is the change in the clouds above the Parliament House, where the pattern is different and the lines are heavier and more distinct. The dark purple and pink colours have been removed from the back of the note. These colours were previously used on the under-print immediately to the left of centre. The lines which had been dark purple and pink on the previous varieties are now pale purple.
