In less than a year, Japan will use new banknotes. At present, the new banknotes have been printed at the Tokyo factory of the National Printing Bureau of Japan.


  This means that after Japan changed the banknote layout design in 2004, it will once again usher in a new version of banknotes to replace the existing 10,000 yen, 5,000 yen and 1,000 yen banknotes. This can't help but make people wonder, why does Japan replace new banknotes?






  There is a rumor about "No counterfeit money in Japan" circulating on the Internet, saying that there is no money detector at any cash register in Japan, and even banks have never seen it...



  In these articles, it is necessary to boast that the Japanese yen is the most difficult currency in the world to counterfeit, and it has a very high technological content, and it has even risen to the height of "the cleanest banknote in the world". That's why some people boast that "the cost of counterfeit Japanese currency is equivalent to the denomination of real currency." However, the person who said this may not have known about our RMB anti-counterfeiting technology.



  The anti-counterfeiting degree of the current fifth set of RMB is no less than that of the U.S. dollar, and some technologies even surpass the U.S. dollar. The U.S. dollar is the world's currency, and it is also the favorite of counterfeit money gangs all over the world. The anti-counterfeiting level is naturally top-notch. And the current RMB has more than a dozen anti-counterfeiting signs that have been announced. That's right, "Stop pretending, let's have a showdown." Because even if these technical details are released to the public, no one will be able to create a banknote that is exactly like the real coin.






  To put it simply, the latest version of RMB in our hands is engraved and printed on special paper, and it also uses a number of "black technologies" such as light-changing hollowed-out window security lines, colored light-changing numbers, portrait watermarks, offset printing patterns, and horizontal and vertical double numbers. . Indeed, the Japanese currency is recognized worldwide as one of the most difficult currencies to counterfeit because of its excellent workmanship in paper, watermarks and printing.



  In fact, it is not surprising that Japan replaced the new banknotes this time, because Japan changes the pattern of banknotes almost every 20 years.



  The reason is simple: to prevent counterfeit money.



  The frequent replacement of banknotes has greatly increased the hidden cost of printing counterfeit banknotes. The old technology has not had time to "learn" thoroughly, and the new version of the design has come again, and the cost of producing counterfeit banknotes is also high. According to Japanese law, those who counterfeit currency will be sentenced to more than 3 years in prison to life imprisonment, and if the circumstances are serious, the death penalty cannot escape.
