Belize Currency Redesign: New dollar notes to honor national icons, PM Briceño assures no devaluation

Posted: Wednesday, July 12, 2023. 3:45 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Prime Minister John Briceño made a key announcement today during his appearance on The Whip Talk Show.

He revealed that Cabinet has made the decision to update the design of Belize’s currency notes.

This move comes in response to the passing of the Queen.

“In the wake of the Queen’s death, new bills have to be issued,” stated Briceño.

As part of the redesign, the currency will now feature images of two Belizean icons, the Right Honourable George Price and Honourable Philip Goldson.

Despite the changes in design, Prime Minister Briceño assured the Belizean people that the value of the Belize currency will remain unchanged.

 The Belize Dollar, which is tied to the US dollar, will not see any adjustment in its value due to the design updates.

“Changing the design does not affect the value of the currency note,” he affirmed.

Belizeans need not worry about any potential devaluation, as this is primarily a cosmetic update to honor distinguished figures in the nation’s history.

The Prime Minister did not disclose the exact timeline of the new notes’ release but promised that they would be introduced soon.

This change will be one of the most significant overhauls of the Belizean currency in recent history and aims to instill a sense of national pride and honor two of Belize’s influential leaders.

The Belizean public and international stakeholders are now eagerly awaiting the unveiling of the new designs.

As the country looks towards the future, it is clear that our rich history will continue to be a strong part of our identity, represented even in our currency.
