New Hong Kong banknotes to thwart counterfeiters … and promote Cantonese culture
Hong Kong’s new banknotes will have six advanced security features to prevent counterfeiting, and will showcase the city’s renowned yum cha culture and Cantonese opera.
Unveiled on Tuesday by the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA), the bills will have enhanced watermark and concealed denomination – a numeral visible when the bill is tilted at an angle – among other features.
