New paper coin of Tk 2 and bank note worth Tk 5 are coming to the market tomorrow, in order to meet the ongoing shortage of such mints, finance ministry sources said.

The newly printed paper coins and notes signed by Senior Finance Secretary Fatima Yasmin will be released from Bangladesh Bank on Tuesday. The financial institution division, a wing of the ministry of finance, has completed the official formalities to release these notes.

These notes are ready and will be issued from Bangladesh Bank's Motijheel office. Later, the new notes will be issued periodically from other offices of Bangladesh Bank and scheduled banks, respectively.

The colours, dimension, watermark, designs, and other security features of the new notes will remain the same as the current ones. Along with the newly printed notes, paper coins of Tk two and notes of five taka denominations and metal coins will also be in use.
