New kyat note brings back bad memories

Bundles of kyat bills pile up at a bank in Myanmar. The value of the country's currency has been falling.

YANGON -- Myanmar's central bank ended last month on a surprising note: It announced the upcoming issuance of a new and improved 10,000 kyat bill.

     It was only a few years ago, in the summer of 2012, that the bank issued the current 10,000 kyat notes. The official line is that the new edition, to be issued July 1, is designed to prevent forgery.
