Vanuatu launches three new denominations on Guardian™
10 June 2014
Port Vila, Vanuatu - Prime Minister Joe Natuman and the Governor of the Reserve Bank of Vanuatu Simeon Athy were all smiles as they announced the launch of the country's three new denominations on Guardian™ polymer substrate: the Vt200, Vt1000 and Vt2000.
The Governor noted in his speech the decision to move to Guardian™ was due to the need for higher durability based on the humid climate and the rising use of cash throughout the islands, and the public’s strong desire to suppress counterfeiting activity that "continues to pose challenges to the current paper notes with lesser security features that could be easily counterfeited."
