[China Packaging News] according to the British "Chinese business daily", the UK plans to launch a new version of 10 pound plastic banknotes in September this year, and the UK has taken a further step forward in the process of currency plasticization. The forthcoming 10 pound plastic banknote has on the back a picture of Jane Austen, the author of the world famous book pride and Prejudice and a famous 19th-century British writer whose cobalt prices continue to be bullish. In September last year, the UK has issued 5 pound plastic banknotes and will continue to issue 20 pound plastic banknotes in the future

Britain will launch a new version of 10 pound plastic banknotes in September this year, with Jane Austen's head printed on the back

it is noteworthy that the new British 5-pound, 10 pound notes and the upcoming 20 pound notes are new plastic notes, which means that the circulation history of British paper money for more than 300 years has officially changed

the material of the new plastic banknote is a kind of thin flexible plastic, which uses a new generation of anti-counterfeiting technology, including a transparent area at the Queen's head, and the color of the edge of the area will show a gradual change from purple to green; When the banknote is tilted, it can be found that the hologram contained in some numbers and patterns will change accordingly

what is the charm of plastic money being called "green money"

not only Britain, but nearly 40 countries have issued plastic banknotes. This form of currency seems to have gradually become popular all over the world. So what is the charm of plastic money

compared with the current circulating banknotes, plastic banknotes are cleaner, safer and tougher to use because of their anti fouling, waterproof, anti-counterfeiting, and not easy to be damaged. Their service life is at least 2.5 times that of banknotes, about 5 years. This will reduce printing and transportation related costs and help reduce energy consumption. Paper money is made of cotton and hemp fiber, which has a short service life and can only be destroyed after being damaged and recycled. Plastic money has a long service life and can also be recycled to reduce the environmental damage caused by papermaking, so it is called "green money"

five pound plastic banknotes issued in Britain last September

at the same time, in terms of anti-counterfeiting measures, plastic banknotes are more difficult to forge and copy than paper banknotes. In terms of appearance, one of the obvious features that distinguishes plastic banknotes from paper banknotes according to the thickness of steel is that there is a transparent window on the face. Each plastic banknote is generally equipped with 1 to 2 transparent windows, up to 4. Various anti-counterfeiting devices are built in to prevent copying. Australian research institutions take the transparent window as an optical lens, with the help of which it displays the anti-counterfeiting features that can be seen with the help of special tools. 2. The sensor features greatly improve the public's ability to distinguish the authenticity of banknotes. Based on similar technology, the transparent part of the Canadian plastic banknote is printed with complex holographic patterns, which can be displayed on both sides of the banknote

however, plastic banknotes are not perfect, and they also have their shortcomings. Plastic banknotes have poor high temperature resistance and are easy to deform or even melt in case of high temperature. Another important point is that the printing of plastic banknotes requires a high technical content. As the first country to have a complete set of plastic banknotes, Australia spent 30 years only developing them. It was not officially developed until 1988. At present, many countries have not mastered this technology
