Security features - feel

  • Note quality

    The note should feel smoother than a paper note.

  • Tactile feature

    There are two arrangements of four dots in a square formation on the £10 notes, enabling physical identification for the visually impaired.

Security features - look

  • Print quality

    Lines should be sharp and well defined with no blurred edges. Colours should be clear and distinct.

  • Printed magnetic stripe

    The bank note contains a printed magnetic stripe which runs vertically through the note, starting between the letters n and s of the Danske Bank brand at top of the note.

  • Clear window

    There is a clear window in the banknote which you can see through.

  • Microtext

    Some areas of the bank note which appear as plain print or a fine line, are in fact very small printed text. This can be seen clearly through a magnifying glass.

  • Serial numbers

    Serial numbers are on the front of the note, one vertical and one horizontal.

  • Denomination numerals

    The number 10 appears on the top left corner and left centre of the front of the note and on both lower corners of the rear.

    The words Ten Pounds is detailed left centre on the front and is right centre toward the bottom of the rear of the note.

  • UV fluorescence

    When observed under UV light, there are areas of the banknotes which appear as two separate glowing colours.

Compare the note

Always compare both sides of a suspect note with another note that you know to be genuine, looking for differences between the two. Make sure you check the size of a suspect note against a known genuine note.
