The franc is the official currency in Rwanda since 1960 when it replaced the Belgian Congo franc. The official currency symbol is FRw. In 1964, the Government introduced a provisional note from 20 to 1,000 francs. In 1977, the 20 and 50 francs notes were replaced by a coin. The 5,000 francs notes were introduced in 1978, followed by the 2,000 francs in 2007. In 2013 the 100 francs notes changed to coin, and the National Bank of Rwanda announced a new 500 and 1000 francs notes in 2019.

The reverse note side illustrates the golden monkey from the Virunga volcanic mountains in the Volcanoes National Park. The lettering on this side of the note is in the English language. This note is part of the 2015 series, and its color is blue, green and orange.
