In order to increase the difficulty of counterfeiting money and also to increase the lifespan, the government us special paper. because we order paper in big amounts its possible to do any customization thats required.
Take a look at the note in front of backlight to see the real watermark. other counterfeiters dont have the ability to produce their own paper so they usually print the watermark with special ink or dont think about it at all. Unfortunately it is impossible to get a real looking watermark on a note once the paper is dried.
Once you take a look at the note in front of some backlight you will see the security thread. Also the microstamping is readable from both sides.
3-D Security Ribbon
Tilt the note side to side to see the bells and 100s moving up and down. If you tilt the banknote forth and back you will see that the bells transform into 100s and move from to the left or right side. Unlike other counterfeiters we are not printing the ribbon, it is woven in the paper itself.
Bell in the Inkwell
If you tilt the banknote you can see that the bell in the copper-colored inkwell changes from green to copper. this brings the effect that the bell appears and disappears when tilting.
We use the same type of printing machine the original are made with so you can feel the print when scratching with a fingernail.
Optical variable ink
The copper-coloured 100 in the bottom right corner changes color from copper to green when tilting.
To increase the difficulty of counterfeiting, the government prints in extremely high quality. We use the same type of printing machines so we are able to offer notes with microprinting.
Changing Serial Numbers
Of course our notes would be easy to find if we use the same serial number over and over again. thats why our notes have valid running serial numbers.
If you take a look at the note under UV-light you will see UV printing, fluorescent fibres and some other UV features.
