Feel, Look, Tilt…

Various security features have been incorporated into every banknote. They will help you to recognise a genuine banknote at a glance.

Feel the raised print – special printing processes give banknotes their unique feel.

Look at the banknote and hold it against the light: a watermark, security thread or see-through number will then be visible. All these (and other features) can be seen from the front and back of genuine banknotes.

Tilt the banknote: on the front or back, you can see a shifting image on the hologram or a glossy stripe or a colour-changing number.

Always check several features. It only takes a few seconds to check a banknote. Just feel it, look at it and tilt it.
