Features of Fake Turkish Lira Banknotes

In order to understand whether a banknote is fake or not, it is necessary to know the features of paper money and compare them accordingly. The main features of the original banknotes printed by the Central Bank are as follows:

Banknote Paper

Original banknote paper is made of 100 percent cotton fiber and does not shine under Ultraviolet (UV) light. Paper colors are a very light shade of the dominant color of each clipping. In addition, the papers used are very resistant to contamination.

Although the counterfeit banknote paper available in the market is usually coated with a special lacquer, it has the feature of shining under UV light.

Watermark

When the front or back of the original banknotes are held up to light, a watermark consisting of Atatürk’s portrait and the number indicating the value of the denomination is seen in the unprinted white area.

Some counterfeit coins do not have a watermark at all, while others are imitated by printing from the inside or outside of the paper.
