Mandela banknotes defective

I wonder whether anybody can post a picture of the latest problem with the South African banknote security features, where the security thread is lifting of the note?

Put a note through a wash cycle in a washing machine. The note starts to deteriorate and the security strip comes right of the note. Very poor quality paper they are using for these notes, never had this problem with the older notes, used to go swimming with them without any problems.:confused:

Well they are just paper :)

 

... anyone with a good photocopier... or maybe just a computer today can create them :)

Hi Kyle2,

 

Took your advice and left a R10 note, folded double, in my pocket to be washed with the rest of the washing. And here's the result:

The strips in the centre lifted, with the top one sitting proud and the bottom one intact. I used the paper clip only to show the separation, and did not use this to pry it loose. The note was still in good condition, and not crumply and old (a rag) as suggested by the Reserve Bank spokesman. For the record, the serial no - AD3343707A

 

I'm afraid we can't save these for a rainy day, as they will come apart.

It's a no brainer...

 

it's FIAT, it's rubbish

 

What do you expect?

 

If that was something you had bought with FIAT you would take it back....

 

Try doing what you did to that FIAT bank note to a silver coin

 

BTW as S Afria is built on gold these two links should be viewed...

 

Workers demand large salary increase

 

and this....

South Africa content to die obediently....

 

So when it comes to the short term future of numismatic coins in S Africa it does NOT look good... supply and demand.

There are many security features... to protect this Ponzi scheme

LOL "FIAT money" is legitimate... please circulate it so we can withdraw the ones that are faulty.... all FIAT around the world is produced by a select few companies!

Never heard of an issue compromising security with a silver coin with no counterparty risk.
