After what was supposed to be the last set of cards produced, a new set of cards has appeared, still using the same Face picture as before. There is no $50 card in this set.

The control numbers have gone back to using the correct sequence. Again they seem to be being released out of sequence. Control numbers 297, 298 & 299 were issued first.
After a number of months came 294, 295 & 296.
 The batch number on the first three issued has changed from 67 to 69, but then on the next three it has gone back to 68, indicating these three cards should have been released first.
The other difference is the inclusion of an extra barcode at the top of the reverse, and notice that the shape has changed between the two releases.
