Hong Kong has New Banknotes

If you know of someone who is blind and who is planning on traveling to or working in Hong Kong, great news!  Hong Kong has just released new banknotes (paper dollars) that feature Braille at the bottom left corner on the front side that correspond with each note’s value. The new series consists of five denominations from $20 - $1000 HK dollars.  A new banknote measuring template to differentiate the denominations by measuring the banknote will also be made available through organizations serving people with visual impairments.
