The MINT produces Nigeria’ Naira Notes
The MINT has been in charge of the production of local currency notes since they were introduced in 1965. It does this on behalf of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
The naira note is an enabler of Nigeria’s physical economy. It is the country’s official unit of exchange and store of value.
It is also a national symbol.
These facts warrant the protection of the naira against counterfeiting. Nigeria’s monetary regulators want to guarantee the integrity of the Nigerian currency, and they take steps to secure the notes. Thousands of counterfeit naira notes are captured and recovered from circulation every year.
Currency imitators try to counterfeit notes by using scanning and printing techniques with varying resolutions. Most fake currencies can be detected with the naked eye. A fraction will only be found out with the use of light-based examination and authenticating machines.
