Performance data of Guardian™ polymer notes released
13 August 2014
Sunbury, England - As reported in Currency News, performance data on a full family of polymer banknotes was presented at the 2014 Banknote Conference held in Washington DC in April.
The main objectives for the new series were to increase security, lower lifecycle costs and provide more environmentally-friendly notes, along with a platform for future security developments.
Whilst recognising that the series is still relatively new, the assessment confirmed an exceptionally low level of counterfeits to date. As for durability, the Guardian™ polymer banknote family is exceeding initial forecasts. Finally, the green credentials of the Guardian™ polymer family were being assessed (read independent banknote substrate lifecycle assessment here) with no evidence to suggest that the criteria would not be met.
