KABUL (Pajhwok): In 2020 Polish Security Printing Works (PWPW) signed a contract to produce 380 million banknotes for Afghanistan (10 AFN, 20 AFN, 50 AFN and 100 AFN), a statement from the Polish Embassy in New Delhi said on Friday.
They are produced in modern technology, with anti-soiling coating Fortis Pro and are protected with Coat4Note varnish based on PWPW unique production method, characterised by higher protection against chemical solvents and soiling than its classic counterpart, the statement said.
The substrate covered with this varnish is also characterised by a higher grammage, which also positively impacts the physical properties of print.
First batch of banknotes was delivered to Kabul last week and the next are scheduled till the end of 2022.
Poland hoped that the cooperation between Poland and Afghanistan will be fruitful and will grow in the future.
