Central Banks govern the life cycle of their banknotes. The lifespan depends from short-term perspective on fitness for circulation, from a longer-term perspective on timeliness of security features and design, but also from inflation impacting value as means of payment.
Technical innovations of substrates, security features of level 1 to 3, printing technology and surface treatment/ varnishing improve the lifespan of banknote series. Technical upgrades enable automated banknote processing as well as operation of cash recycling ATMs and automated cash register systems.
The distribution of new banknotes and the repatriation of banknotes require an effective planning regarding production, storage to support daily operation and strategic reserve, processing and shredding as well as transport logistics.
