Visit and seminar at Reserve Bank of Australia – Note Printing Facility

Reserve Bank of Australia has been the pioneer of polymer banknotes. Since the early years of using polymers for banknotes in Australia the use of the technology is now applied in many other countries in the World. The development and application of overt and covert security features has significantly increased compared to those early years. This seminar will show us the progress in this area. The seminar is followed by a tour of the facilities.
