Malawi is introducing a 2,000 kwacha ($2.80, £2.20) bank note, which will be in circulation from 19 December this year, the Reserve Bank of Malawi says.
At the moment the highest denomination note is 1,000 kwacha.
The bank says the new note is being introduced because of inflation.
It will have a motif of Malawi University of Science and Technology, a brainchild of the country’s late President Bingu Wa Mutharika, on one side.
The other will carry the portrait of Malawi’s nationalist and freedom fighter John Chilembwe.
