The Banknotes of Mozambique

Later Independence Issues – 1991 to 2004

Figure 18

The three styles of security threads used on the banknotes in this study are shown here. The first thread uses the word ‘Moçambique’ in pairs, but the pairs are offset. This thread is used in all notes save two in this series. The second thread is used in the 200,000-metical note and also uses pairs of the word ‘Moçambique’, but the text is heavier and the pairs are not offset. The third thread is a windowed thread and is used only in the 500,000-metical note.
