Awards See Banknotes Cash in on Technical Advancements
March 11, 2020 – New banknotes have been recognised for their outstanding design and security technical excellence with international awards. The awards formed part of the High Security Printing EMEA Conference, which was organised by Reconnaissance International and held recently in Lisbon, Portugal. These recognise the highest levels of achievement in three categories: Best New Series, Best New Banknote, and Best New Commemorative Banknote.
The Central Bank of Armenia’s new Dram series won the accolade for the Best New Series, reflecting the country’s commitment to improve the quality of its currency in the face of one of the toughest environments in the world for circulating notes.
The series in denominations of 500, 1,000, 2,000, 5,000,10,000, 20,000 and 50,000 Drams is produced on a composite Substrate that combines the durability of polymer with the printability and inclusion of paper to produce highly durable and secure banknotes. The design of the notes also reflects the historical, cultural and religious themes of Armenia, which is the first country in the world to have an entire banknote series printed on Louisenthal’s Hybrid ADDvance paper/polymer composite.
