An Approach to the Production of Secure Durable Bank Notes (1974)

By June 30th, 1974

Australia’s new decimal currency was released on 14 February 1966 and when forgeries were detected, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) commenced a long collaboration with CSIRO with the aim of providing a polymer based note with optically variable security devices.
