Beyond clean, green, durable and secure.
SAFEGUARD® was launched in response to central bank demand and first issued in 2013. It became De La Rue’s fastest growing product and is already issued by 26 issuing authorities on 93 notes.
Several central banks have said they moved to polymer because it is cleaner, greener, more durable and more secure than paper banknotes. De La Rue is the only provider of polymer substrate who also manufactures finished banknotes, combining substrate and print design for exceptional product integration.
