The Central Bank of the Bahamas issued a warning about a dangerous counterfeit of 100 dollars banknotes of the series 2000 (BSD100.3). The following details will help recognize the forgeries:
Watermark: The galleon is printed, not a true watermark created by differences in the thickness of the paper.
Silver foil: It shows distorted flat images of the sand dollar, marlin and “$100”.
Security thread: In the fake note there is a solid dark gray line, which does not exist in the genuine note.
Other characteristics can be found by going to the webpage of the Central Bank of the Bahamas.
