Banknote counterfeiting is a worldwide phenomenon and affects almost any currency. The Central Bank of Swaziland would like to warn members of the public, especially traders, that the incidence of attempts to forge banknotes usually increases during the festive season.
It has come to the attention of the Central Bank of Swaziland that there are a few poor quality forged notes in circulation. These poor quality forgeries are easily recognisable as they do not have the basic security features of the banknotes produced by the Central Bank of Swaziland.
The public is urged to always be vigilant and on the look-out for suspicious-looking notes and to report these to the police immediately. Everyone is requested to familiarise themselves with the security features of the new banknotes to increase confidence in our money. Know the features, check them and make sure that you have a genuine note.
The poor quality forged notes can easily be discernible to the public provided they follow the FEEL – LOOK – TILT principle.
