CCL Secure featured in CFI.co – Capital Finance International Journal
28 July 2017
Following CCL Secure’s award win for ‘Most Innovative Banknote Technology Global’, CFi.co has featured the company in an article on our history of innovation and industry achievements.
The leading finance journal reports: “Most people that use polymer banknotes in their everyday lives do so without much thought about their momentous history. The first polymer commemorative ten dollar note marked Australia’s bicentenary. It was a result of twenty years’ research into how to “build a better banknote” in order to fight the counterfeiting that was experienced following the introduction of the new Australian decimal system of currency. The note featured the world’s first transparent window and hologram, making it the most secure banknote of its time.
What now seems normal to the more than twenty countries using banknotes issued on Guardian™ polymer substrate, the security features and enhanced durability seen on the first polymer note set an unprecedented paradigm in banknote design and manufacture.”
“A long way from the very first Australian $10, CCL Secure continues to be at the forefront of innovation in the industry. The polymer banknote has exciting new developments in store for its future. In the coming years, Guardian™ polymer will be used for the new UK ten [joining the polymer £5 already in circulation] as well as the new full family of Australian denominations with the next-generation top-to-bottom window feature.”
