An Integrated Banknote Solution

This is a cash based world. 85% of all global transactions are still made with cash, making banknotes a fundamental tool for allowing individuals to buy, companies to sell and governments and central banks to manage the flow of money.

De La Rue - Banknote Design


Their value makes them a highly lucrative target for fraud and counterfeit and preventing this requires investment in security features and a robust cash supply chain. To achieve this governments and central banks require notes which are not only beautifully designed pieces, but are also highly technically advanced and protected from counterfeit and fraud.

Other key requirements include:

  • Longevity and durability - long lasting durable notes will increase the quality of banknotes in circulation and help to maximise your investment in the series
  • Highly visible launch - public education and acceptance is critical to early life success of any new banknote series
