Can You Spot the Counterfeits?

Can You Spot the Counterfeits?

Distribution of counterfeit twenty dollar bills is currently on the rise in Bowling Green and Warren County. Awareness goes a long way in detecting counterfeit currency. Here are some security features to look for:

  • Color shifting and metallic ink
  • Raised printing (most noticeable on the President’s jacket)
  • Embedded security thread on the left-hand side of the bill
  • Watermark of the President’s face on the right-hand side of the bill
  • Red and blue security fibers that can be moved with a paperclip
  • Clean edges and uniform margins (equidistant from left to right and top to bottom)

For a closer look at these security features, please visit or check out our informational video on Facebook.
