He Central Bank (BCRA) put into circulation new $2,000 bills with additional security measures. What are the changes between new and old bills?
According to what was reported by the monetary authority, the main change between the new papers and those that were put into circulation in May of this year has to do with the incorporation of a “green safety thread“. Furthermore, in the obverse the location of the number 2000 is modified to make room for the watermarkwhich contains the initials of the characters in electrotype.
On the reverse, a portion of the main vignette has a different color and signatures occupy a different space in this broadcast.
“This bill, which is part of the Heroínas y Héroes de la Patria family, which will be progressively distributed through the network of bank branches throughout the country, maintains the rest of the characteristics of the 2000 peso bill and will coexist with the commemorative of the same denomination. This bill will begin with the “E” series,” they said in a statement from the BCRA.
This ticket features the image of the National Institute of Microbiology Dr. Carlos G. Malbránas well as that of Dr. Ramon Carrillo and of the Dr. Cecilia Griersonprecursors in the development of medicine and public health in our country.
New security measures
- Watermark. In the blank sector, when looking at the bill against the light, you can see the portraits of Dr. Ramón Carrillo and Dr. Cecilia Grierson, as well as the initials of their names in a light tone.
- Vented security thread. A green security thread is inserted into the bill and is revealed in three “windows.” When held against the light, it is seen as a continuous band and the acronym BCRA can be seen. The thread presents a dynamic effect when moving the bill.
- Optical variability ink. This motif changes color from green to blue when the banknote is tilted and presents a dynamic three-dimensional effect.
- latent image. The initials “RA” can be seen when the bill is viewed in low light.
- Front-back complementation motif. When backlit, the motif is completed and the value “2000” appears.
