The Process of Printing Currency
we use money everyday, as for us, it is rather familiar and common. But how has currency been made, why it has such great power for purchase? In the article, I will introduce someting about that.
On December 1st 1948,Guest Posting People’s Bank of China had established and begun to issue RMB, symbolizing a new page of China’s currency printing career. With production capacity bigger and bigger, technical merit stronger and stronger, from the design of currency to printing, every process possesses a group of professional technicians with high quality. It ranked first in the world such as production scale, specialized fields etc, as well as the comprehensive strength reached the international level.
Until 2009, China has designed five sets of RMB, meanwhile she has produced many of special invoice for taxed fee, securities, passport, bank paper, advanced anti-counterfeiting paper and various kinds of anti-forgery ink by the use of currency printing machine and technologies.
May I know whether you have seen RMB currency of å100. It is red, with a portrait of Chairman Mao Zedong in the front cover, the back cover is a picture digital assets management system of landscape. The paper of currency is water marked paper, which is a kind of special paper for currency printing. The kind of paper is produced by China Banknote Printing and Minting Corporation (CBPMC) as well as its three subsidiary companies.
When printing the currency, at first there should be a big piece of paper, which can cover 28 pieces of one currency. Then the technician prints the currency first, then paint it in red, just in a short time, they can print lots pieces of paper. When interviewing, we saw that technicians work hard, creating plenty of papers in one time, everyday they work hard and busy, after having printed one side then they will print the other side, in the same process.
At workshop of checking and sealing, there should take two steps of checking currency when checking the currency. At first you should check the large piece of paper, that’s to check one piece and another piece from the printer which are printed with RMB in large scale.
After finishing checking, then it will enter the next process: cut. It means that you have to cut the currency in large scale into small pieces, making it into the same shape as the currency we use at usual time. Next technicians will check whether there is something wrong with the currency or not, e.g. is there anything wrong with numbers when printing, whether the color is well-proportioned, whether the water print is inverted or not.
