The look and feel of the American banknotes hasn't changed much over the years, so designer Audrey Avgust has taken artistic liberties in creating a new approach to the United States currency.
The banknotes are crafted from a series of flexible layers made from polymer, which enable the currency to withstand accidental destruction as well as from becoming wet when encountering moisture. This enables the bills to be inherently durable for extended use, while the PGP encrypted QR code along with metameric inks that's used to individually print serial numbers ensures authenticity.
The conceptual American banknotes are emblazoned with crisp imagery of past American presidents and other quintessential imagery from the country to make them easily recognizable by persons domestically and internationally.
These American Banknotes are Crafted from Flexible Polymer
1. Flexible Polymer Banknotes - The use of flexible polymer in banknote production offers a durable, environmentally sustainable and secure alternative to paper-based currency.
2. PGP Encrypted QR Codes - The application of PGP encrypted QR codes to banknotes provides a tamper-proof way of verifying currency authenticity and enhances the security of cash transactions.
3. Metameric Inks - The use of metameric inks in currency printing offers an anti-counterfeit technique that allows for visual verification of legitimate currency.
1. Banking and Financial Services - The banking and financial services sectors can adopt the use of flexible polymer banknotes, PGP encrypted QR codes and metameric inks to enhance security, durability and authenticity of cash transactions.
2. Printing and Packaging - The printing and packaging industries can explore the production and application of flexible polymer substrates, PGP encrypted QR codes and metameric inks to meet the growing demand for secure and sustainable currency printing.
3. Government and Regulatory Agencies - Government and regulatory agencies can leverage the benefits of flexible polymer banknotes, PGP encrypted QR codes and metameric inks to enhance financial crime prevention, border security, and trade facilitation.
