Nepal's Kings on a last note!

Since paper currency was introduced in Nepal in 1945, paper currency has always borne the portrait of the kings - Tribhuwan, Mahendra, Birendra and Gyanendra up until 2006 when Gyanendra stepped down from the throne after the People's Revolt, and the Nepal Rastra Bank replaced the king's portrait with that of Sagarmatha. As of this week, the Rastra Bank will start replacing all notes bearing the ex-king's portrait with new notes. While the decision itself was announced last August, it is being brought into action now. While these notes will not be demonetized, they will be exchanged with new notes.
