Introduced in 2012, the new Malaysia polymer currency notes incorporate advanced and enhanced security features including micro lettering, fluorescent elements visible only under ultraviolet light, a multi-coloured latent image which changes colour when viewed at different angles, a holographic stripe at the side of the note and many others. This is a talk on the security features of the new Malaysian currency series. There will be tips on handling polymer banknotes as well as on Going Green by the recycling of fit banknotes. After the talk, you are welcome to join a guided tour of the Museum galleries.
