Since 1881, the manufacture of banknotes has been the main activity of the National Bank of Romania Printing Works.
Thanks to the efforts made over the years by experts in the security printing field, the National Bank of Romania Printing Works today owns technologies and equipment which allow high quality and maximum-security banknotes manufacture, issued both by the central bank of Romania and by central banks of other states.
Starting with 2001, the National Bank of Romania Printing Works has been the first typography in Europe to print banknotes on polymer support. At this time being, it is the only company to manufacture all the Romanian banknotes in circulation, on this type of printing support.
Each banknote includes a wide range of specific security elements and characteristics, such as special secured design, security elements incorporated in the printing support (paper or polymer) and other security elements printed with special inks.
