Banknote Security Program Levels

Banknote security depends upon the successful integration of multiple levels of security features within an aesthetic design that is pleasing to the public. Banknote security features are categorized into three separate levels.

  • Level 1 – overt features viewable by the public
  • Level 2 – hidden or covert features requiring a device for inspection and used by retailers and the public
  • Level 3 – machine readable features for Central Banks


Authentix Level 3 Security Solutions

Level 3 machine-readable features are the ultimate safeguard in banknote security, which is why Authentix provides Jewel™, a Level 3 security solution to Central Banks around the world. Authentix offers both optical markers and specialized sensors to be used only by the Central Bank for confirming the presence and correct response of the security materials.
