and limitless design.
GEMINI™ is a distinctive and versatile print feature that reveals itself under ultra-violet light for cashiers, and tellers to validate. The hidden image appears as two colours when illuminated with UV and is intricately linked to the image or pattern work of the visible print.
With over 150 banknote denominations on GEMINI™ and the ability to retrofit existing designs, GEMINI™ is De La Rue’s most popular print feature. Enhanced variants of GEMINI™ further increase the flexibility of this feature.
With Gemini™ the impact is instantaneous and the design variations are limitless.
- Cashier and teller authentication
- Adding “Easter Eggs” (i.e. hidden features to delight the user) simple and cost effective increase in counterfeit resilience
- A simple, cost effective route to increase the counterfeit resilience
- Visually linking banknotes in a series using variants on a common theme
- Every single banknote denomination
Four variants of GEMINI™ are available.
The original GEMINI™ appears as a single shape or image in a single colour, with the two UV colours appearing as perfectly linked to that image. GEMINI™-Blocks, GEMINI™-Lines and GEMINI™-Microtext are enhanced variants, using distinct patterns and microtext to build up the UV variants of the feature.
