The Central Bank of the Dominican Republic (BCRD) informs that tomorrow an improved 2,000 Dominican peso bill, series 2019, will circulate, which contains a new security trait.
The entity stated that the new bill holds the security features as the 2,000 Dominican peso bills currently in circulation, which keeps their liberating force for the payment of all public and private obligations.
This bill is issued by virtue of the provisions contained in Articles 228, 229, and 230 of the Constitution of the Dominican Republic and Article 25, literals a) and c) of the Monetary and Financial Law No. 183- 02.
“The BCRD recalls that the security measures for banknotes are: Security thread: it changes color from green to blue, which has a droplet effect and gives the sensation of undulating sand; This thread can be combined with the isotype of the institutional visual identity. Year of printing: located in the lower part of the front of the banknote, it allows us to identify the series to which it belongs, that is, in which year it was manufactured”, as mentioned on a statement.
Also, a more accentuated mark for the blind: a geometric figure in high relief located on the edge of the upper left corner.
Watermark: the image of the patrician Juan Pablo Duarte that can be seen when exposing the banknote to the light. Duarte is incorporated in the mass of the paper, accompanied by the value of the denomination “2000”, vertically and to its right.
Behind Duarte’s image, you can see the figure of a semicircle, made up of many points or pixels.
Isotype with the visual identity of the BCRD: joined by the value of the denomination in numerical characters, which change from green to blue, printed with variable magnetic ink that presents a droplet effect and gives the sensation of undulating sand.
The security measures are completed with a latent image: small inverted lines forming an engraving with the initials “BCRD” can be seen when the banknote is viewed at a certain angle, with the help of light.
Horizontal numbering: identification number of each banknote, located on the upper left side, next to the mark for the blind. This numbering is equal to the vertical numbering.
Micro prints: inscriptions in very small letters, which at first glance look like a solid line, but can be appreciated with the help of a magnifying glass or magnifying glass.
Y Vertical numbering: identification number of each ticket, located on the right side. This numbering must be equal to the horizontal numbering
