THE WORLD’S POLYMER CURRENCY EXPERTS
Even in an age of electronic banking, contactless payments and smartphone payment systems, there is still a deep and underlying need for cash as a trusted store of value.
As polymer banknotes play an increasing role in ensuring that billions of people have confidence in the currency they use each day, it’s hardly surprising that CCL Secure is the partner of choice for currency issuing authorities around the world.
Ever since the world’s first polymer banknotes were produced, in 1988, CCL Secure has provided expert support to issuing authorities as they transition to a currency that is stronger, safer, cleaner, greener, and which generate significant cost savings over their lifetime compared to paper banknotes.

Despite the global challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic, CCL Secure say they have seen polymer banknotes go from strength to strength around the world.
