In March, the Banco de la Republica Colombia began circulating new 5,000 peso banknotes with the addition of the number 5 in Braille on the left side of the note. The Braille “5” is the only addition to the note that retains the previous design and security features.

News stories from Colombia report that the COL$50,000 note include the number “50” in Braille in the bottom left next to the serial number. The COL$2,000 note includes the number “2” in Braille in the same location as the new COL$5,000 note.

The Colombian Central bank reports that it will be updating the rest of their banknotes to include the Braille numbers.
