Many central banks report that people do not check their banknotes carefully enough.
This is indeed a problem for currency issuers, and the basis of the counterfeiter’s business.
The KINEGRAM optical platform from KURZ offers a security feature that gives the user the maximum opportunity to recognise the genuine note – and spot the fake one which does not bear the right feature – even when the user has no training or even any great interest in checking his or her money.
Durability in circulation is another key concern of banknote issuers. Conferences such as the African Currency Forum are the venue for lively discussion on the merits of paper, durable paper, pre-and post-print varnish, polymer and composite substrates. A KINEGRAM security feature from KURZ offers proven durability in circulation on any substrate even in challenging environments.
