Banknotes and Coins
Bank of South Sudan has the sole right to print/mint, issue and destroy banknotes and coins in South Sudan .
The Bank is responsible for the bulk distribution of banknotes and coin and to meet the public demand. It makes virtually no difference from the Bank’s broad monetary policy perspective whether the public holds cash, demand deposits at banks. The potential supply of banknotes and coins to the public however, is limited by banks to the extent that the public is only permitted to withdraw cash held as deposits or draw cash against pre-arranged credit facilities.
The branches of the Bank, the South Sudan Police Services and the commercial banks all work together in combating the counterfeiting of banknotes and coins.
