An international role

The Banque de France exports its banknote expertise worldwide. Half of its manufacturing facilities are devoted to producing banknotes for some 20 foreign countries. It also provides advisory services and assistance.

The Banque de France is also a key player on the international banknote market. Each year, more than half of the production capacity of its subsidiary EuropaFi is used to manufacture banknote and security papers for printing plants other than the Banque de France’ one. The same is true for the Chamalières Printing Works, where more than half of the production is dedicated to printing currencies other than the euro, for some twenty countries around the world.

But its services are not limited to simply supplying paper or banknotes, it also provides its customer Central Banks with:

  • its expertise in the field of banknotes (training in the authentication of banknotes, the banknote manufacturing process and the analysis of counterfeits in circulation, assistance in setting up counterfeit analysis laboratories, creation of communication media, etc.).
  • support in all areas related to cash management (training in the calculation of new banknotes requirements, sorting policy, monitoring the quality of banknotes in circulation, etc.)
