The Bank of Israel and enforcement authorities are acting to increase deterrence against counterfeiting of banknotes
In addition to deterrent and enforcement measures, the Bank of Israel acts through a variety of channels to ensure that the banknotes provided to the public are authentic and secure. The security features on the new series of banknotes were created with advanced technology and are among the best in the world. Counterfeiters have so far been unsuccessful in any attempt to mimic the security features, and the Bank of Israel’s public information and awareness efforts, under the slogan “It’s simple to make sure that it’s secure” are intended to acquaint every citizen with the security features and easily check that the banknotes in his or her possession are authentic and secure.
The Bank of Israel will continue cooperating with law enforcement authorities, as well as various entities in the business sector, to maintain the quality and authenticity of the banknotes in circulation.
