07 March 2014  |  2733 views  |  1 Source: Bank of England

The Bank of England has today launched an interactive guide to banknotes, as part of its ongoing commitment to building awareness of the security features the public should look for in Bank of England banknotes.

The app aims to make Bank of England educational material more accessible to retailers, businesses and members of the public. Through its touch-screen guide, it allows users to learn about the security features on all current Bank of England banknotes.

The app is free to download through the Apple or Google Play Stores, or can be accessed through links on the Bank's website.

Haven't we had enough of this "look for a silver streak running from top to bottom at three-quarters of the way down the width of the note" kind of education about security features of banknotes? Do we really need an app to spread the same message? How I wish there was instead an app that scanned banknotes and automatically spotted the counterfeit ones.
