Kenya is soon set to get a new set of bank notes in circulation and according to the Central Bank governor, Dr Patrick Njoroge, this is set to happen in the second quarter of 2018.
A creative Art Director who goes by the name Dicky Jr decided to use his creative abilities to develop a design concept for the Modern Shilling. In a post he shared, he stated: “The current notes in circulation still bear the portraits of former Presidents and in fact, I recently read an article about the Central Bank Governor again postponing the release date for the new generation notes. Anyway.. that got me thinking: how would a modern Kenyan Shilling actually look? And perhaps more fundamentally, what do Kenyans consider ‘Kenyan’? ”
He also added a disclaimer that the images are NOT legal tender and is NOT sanctioned by the CBK or the Government Of Kenya
