Sudan Issues New 1.000 Pound Banknote with RAPID® Security Thread


The Central Bank of Sudan (CBoS) has issued a new 1.000 Sudanese Pound (SDG) banknote. The note is the newest addition in a series starting with the 100 Pound note issued in 2019.


The 1.000 Pound is protected by RAPID® – a micro-optic security thread displaying a high contrast movement effect. The imagery on the RAPID security thread is inspired by Islamic ornaments.


For more information about the new note, please visit the CBoS web site and watch the Youtube video – in Arabic.




The previous version of the 1000 Pound of the same design used a holographic patch but was removed in July 2022.
