New Saudi Banknotes

These are pictures of the new Saudi banknotes that will go into effect tomorrow. Note the 50-riyal banknote:
The front of the note shows a portrait of the guardian of the two holy mosques, King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz al-Saud, and a picture of the al-Sakhra dome mosque, while in the back of the note depicts a picture of al-Aqsa mosque in al-Quds al-Shareef.
