The National Bank of the Republic of Macedonia has not announced a
date for when the 200- and 2,000-denar bank notes would be placed into circulation.
The face design for the 200-denar note, according to a Nov. 14,
2014, news release from the National Bank of the Republic of
Macedonia, features a portion of Psalm 41, a Psalm of David in the Old
Testament, as it appears on some of the early medieval terra-cotta
icons found in archaeological discoveries in Vinica. Also depicted is
an early medieval bronze fibula (brooch) from the beginning of the
sixth century, found near Prilep.
The back design of the 200-denar note shows an architectural art
element of the frontal facade of the Painted Mosque in Tetovo, and
floral decorative elements taken from the marble floor tiles of the
famous Isaac mosque in Bitola, built at the beginning of the 16th century.

The back design of the 2,000-denar note depicts designs from inside
a 16th century gilded bowl, showing two facing peacocks surrounded by
lavish floral decoration.
