The security features protect the new series of banknotes at three levels: public, teller and machine readability. The new series is the first in the world to introduce NEXUS™, a new embedded stripe product category and is featured on the QR500. NEXUS™ appears as a purple stripe with the Qatar State emblem and denomination numeral chosen as the focal images. IGNITE® thread appears on the QR50, QR100 and QR200 denominations, with PUREIMAGE™ thread used for the QR5 and QR10, whilst FACET® thread is used on the QR1 note. Security is further enhanced with a striking holographic patch on the QR50, QR100, QR200 and QR500 denominations and GEMINI™ on all denominations.
De La Rue would like to congratulate the Qatar Central Bank on their nomination and recognition of the aesthetic, technical and functional merits of their latest series of banknotes.
