10,000 Won Security Features
1. Hologram (OVD : Optically Variable Device): Changing designs by different angles By different angles, ‘map of the Korea’, ‘face value number & Taegeuk (the Great Absolute)’, and ‘Four signs of divination’ can be seen by turns on the thin special film
2. Color Shifting Ink: Because of special ink, which is mixed with different material having different reflection to the light, the color of face value number changes gold to green.
4. Security Thread: Held up to the light, the banknote shows microletters within a thin fluorescent plastic film.
5. See-through Register: The dividing shape of Taegeuk is printed on the both sides of the note at the exactly matching spot. Holding the note up to the light, the combining shape on front and reverse will make a completed Taegeuk.
6. Micro Lettering: Difficult to see with the naked eye, but can be discerved with a magnifier. It is appeared as a line or dotted line when forged by color printer or color copier.
7. Watermark: Held up to the light, a hidden reverse image portrait appears in the non-image space on the left side of the obverse, thanks to the variation in thickness within each note.
8. SPAS : Special Press and Soldering: Without holding the note up to the light, we can easily observe the hidden face value number with the naked eye, thanks to enlarged differences in thickness between parts of each note.
9. Watermark Bar: Held up to the light, three horizontal dark bars and two bright bars appear in turn, thanks to the variation in thickness within each note.
10. Intaglio Printing: A special method putting ink into the concave and printing as convex. The slightly raised figures can be felt.
11. Fluorescent Security Fiber: The special fluorescent fiber is inserted into the note. Using ultraviolet fluorescent light, it is possible to see various scattering fluorescent fiber on the note.
12. Endless Pattern: A printing method inter-linking the pattern between top and bottom, right and left around the edge of the note.
13. Rainbow Printing: A printing method whereby colors give a rainbow-like effect.
Famous quotes containing the words security, won and/or features:
“Thanks to recent trends in the theory of knowledge, history is now better aware of its own worth and unassailability than it formerly was. It is precisely in its inexact character, in the fact that it can never be normative and does not have to be, that its security lies.”
—Johan Huizinga (18721945)
“Only the mob and the elite can be attracted by the momentum of totalitarianism itself. The masses have to be won by propaganda.”
—Hannah Arendt (19061975)
“It looks as if
Some pallid thing had squashed its features flat
And its eyes shut with overeagerness
To see what people found so interesting
In one another, and had gone to sleep
Of its own stupid lack of understanding,
Or broken its white neck of mushroom stuff
Short off, and died against the windowpane.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
