The National Bank of the Republic of Macedonia has issued two new banknotes to mark 70 years of central banking activities.
The new 200 and 2,000 Denar banknote denominations from Macedonia are circulating banknotes, joining the current family of banknotes that began circulating in the 1990’s.
The new banknotes have been printed by UK banknote printers De La Rue.
The 200 Denar banknote includes a colour changing StarChrome® security thread and a gold iridescent stripe, as well as the ultraviolet Gemini™ feature.
The 2,000 Denar banknote contains a Kinetic StarChrome® security thread with extra long windows, a world first according to De La Rue, which allows more of the holographic and colour changing elements of the thread to be viewed and consequently makes it easier for people to authenticate the banknote. The 2000 Denar also includes SICPA‘s SPARK® Live Truspin security feature.
