The Bank of Guyana will soon be issuing an upgraded $1,000 banknote with new security thread features including RAPID®.
A press release from the Guyana central bank has confirmed that the upgraded $1,000 banknote will no longer have the holographic stripe displayed on the front of the banknote, but will instead feature Crane Currency’s RAPID® micro-optic security thread.
The 6mm RAPID® thread will be blue coloured and display eye-catching movements visible when the banknote is tilted.
In addition, the colour-shifting security thread which was originally shown on the reverse of the banknote will no longer be present. Instead, a second thread will be embedded in the banknote, only visible when the note is viewed when held against a light source.
The central bank will issue the upgraded banknote from 04 March 2019.
No imagery of the upgraded banknote is available at the time of writing.
