That's interesting, eh?

I really like the "2000 lei note from Romania".

"fake" credit cards rely on copying information on to a magnetic strip. completely different than currency. We have the technology already. My son's birth certificate is printed on a "plastic" paper.

I bet it won't take the counterfeiters long to find the plastic paper they need.

I have seen the Australian currency I would say counterfeiters can try. The cost my maybe the deciding factor here.

If you wish to see it for your self go to your bank and buy some Australian dollars.

Since counterfeiters are thieves I assume they will find a way to steal the plastic. maybe a little payoff to someone working where the plastic is made. The ingenuity of these guys never fails to surprise me.

Good luck with that. The way the plastic is made is insane. Nothing like it around. That is probably why we are buying the machines from down there. It's quite the process.

That does look pretty good, no doubt it will stop the small time counterfeiter.
