Technology used for banknote production
The use of polymer substrates (fully produced in Russia) imposes some restrictions on the use of security measures for banknotes. For them, one cannot use all technologies that are suitable for paper currencies, Arkady Trachuk. CEO of Russia’s National Mint Goznak, said.
Goznak specialists have developed a number of security features for the polymer note that allow maximum use of visual and tactile characteristics of the polymer material. Authenticity of the banknote can be checked visually by tilting it at different angles, by touch - checking the relief along the edges of the front side of the banknote, or under ultraviolet light. According to experts, the life of plastic banknotes is about 2.5 times higher than that of paper money of low denomination. The Bank of Russia will use this technology to produce ordinary banknotes, proceeding from their nominal value and planned circulation, Skorobogatova said.
Despite the fact that a commemorative banknote can be used for payments, the Bank of Russia will not organize the setting of ATMs for its reception.
