Abstract

EN The paper presents the phenomenon of banknote counterfeiting in Poland and a selection of methods used against this type of crime. It shows that the number of counterfeit banknotes in Poland is much lower than in the eurozone countries. Moreover, a share of counterfeit Polish zloty banknotes significantly dropped in 2015-2018 to the level of 2.6-2.7 PPM. This reduction should be associated with the Polish zloty banknotes upgrading in 2014 and 2016 that introduced a set of new security features discussed in this paper. This leads to the conclusion that a regular currency modernization and an introduction of new security features are a very effective anti-counterfeit method.
