"Meet IACA's Members" Pilot Program

IACA is pleased to announce the initiation of a pilot program called “Meet IACA’s Members.” This pilot program offers our members the opportunity to introduce themselves to each other by submitting a short article on a subject of general interest. We plan to publish introductory articles on our website 4 or 5 times a year, alternating between our central bank and company members.

We are launching this project with a piece from Authentix on the subject of level three features for banknotes.

If you would like to submit a “Meet IACA’s Members” article, please contact  Eugenie Foster to discuss the details at

IACA announces new benefit

The International Association of Currency Affairs has created a new benefit for nominees, finalists, and winners of their prestigious Excellence in Currency Awards. Special versions of the IACA logo will be made available to recognise the organisations that participate and succeed in the awards program. The logos can be used on participants’ websites, press releases and other communications to highlight their achievements. 

Earlier this year two awards for technical excellence were presented at Banknote 2014. KBA-NotaSys won Best Currency Innovation for its Protecta varnishing unit, and Louisenthal won Best New Currency Feature for its RollingStar® security thread synchronized with SICPA SPARK® on the Morocco 100 Dirham note.

The 8th IACA Excellence in Currency Awards will take place next year in conjunction with the Currency Conference to be held in Vancouver in May. Expanded guidelines for the awards program will be published shortly, with nominations opening in early October.
