This new series of notes features a common front design, though depicted in different colors on each denomination, including the new 50-dollar note. The backs pay homage to some of the larger of the 15 major islands that make up the country. The addition of a watermark and solid security thread makes these notes better protected against counterfeiting than the first series.
