Papua New Guinea - 20 Kina 40th Anniversary of Independence
Papua New Guinea was granted independence by Australia on 16.09.1975. This note was issued to celebrate the country's 40th Anniversary. This is the fourth time that Papua New Guinea had released banknotes to celebrate it's independence day. The first time was in 1995 with a single 20 Kina note for the 20th Anniversary. In 2000, it released a full set for the 25th Anniversary with 5 notes from 2 to 50 Kina and in 2010, another full set of 6 notes from 2 to 100 Kina to celebrate it's 35th Anniversary. For this year, only the 20 Kina was issued. Like all previous Independence celebrations, the note used is the same as current issue except that it has the Independence logo added to the design.
