Namibia's central bank officially issued a new commemorative banknote at an event on Friday.

"The banknote can be used for the payment of goods and services alongside the current family of banknotes," said Ebson Uanguta, the deputy governor of the bank, at the event.

Uanguta purchased goods with the newly printed note at the event.

"The commemorative note is a special banknote which marks the country's three decades of independence, peaceful transfer of power between the country's three presidents, and the entrenchment of democracy, national unity, and stability," he said.

Uanguta said the once-off-print is in limited quantities and therefore each Namibian should have an opportunity to own one and pay for goods and services with it or keep as a souvenir/collector's item.

The 30-Namibia-dollar commemorative banknote is available across the country at all commercial banks, the central bank said. (Xinhua)
