New issue banknotes

World Banks are regularly releasing banknotes with new designs and additional security features,so updating ITL currency dataset files is a constant process. All ITL currency dataset files are freely available to download from our website. We recommend updating currency files whenever maintenance is conducted on any ITL banknote validators to ensure your validators contain the very latest issue banknotes.


Over the last few months three World Banks in the USA, Canada and Northern Ireland have publicly released new issue notes:

The US Federal Reserve has released a new issue $100 bill with increased security features;

The Bank of Canada has released new $5 and $10 polymer bills;

The Bank of Ireland (in Northern Ireland) has issued new issue £5, £10 & £20 pound notes.
