The National Bank has chosen to renew the design of a 100 hryvnias banknote, guided by the degree of wear of such banknotes, and not by the level of their forgery.
The level of fake hryvnia banknotes is insignificant and corresponds to the level of 2013, said Deputy Director of the Department of Money Circulation of the National Bank of Ukraine Vladimir Tishchenko during the presentation of the updated 100-hryvnia banknote with an increased level of protection, Unian reports.
According to him, the National Bank has chosen to renew the design of 100 hryvnias banknotes, guided by the degree of wear of such banknotes, and not by the level of their forgery.
"The level of forgery is at the level of 2013. That is, three and four tenths of a counterfeit banknote for one million real banknotes that are in circulation, "Tishchenko said.
According to him, among these counterfeit banknotes, banknotes of 20, 50 and 100 hryvnias are most often found. He also stressed that the issue of new banknotes is within the planned increase in cash for this year, and 100-hryvnia banknotes of the old model will be in circulation on a par with the new ones.
As UNIAN reported, from March 9, 2015, the National Bank will issue banknotes of 100 UAH worth of the sample of 2014 with an improved protection system. Updating the 100-hryvna banknote is the result of a long-term project of the regulator to update the previous series of national currency banknotes of the sample of 2003-2007.
