Royal Joh. Enschedé

Royal Joh. Enschedé (Dutch: Koninklijke Joh. Enschedé) is a printer of security documents, stamps and banknotes based in Haarlem, Netherlands. Joh. Enschedé specialises in print, media and security. The company hosts the Museum Enschedé and has branches in Amsterdam, Brussels and Haarlem.

The company was founded in 1703, when Izaak Enschedé registered with the Printers Guild in Haarlem.

Joh. Enschedé has long been associated with the printing of banknotes; the company printed the “Robin”, the very first Dutch banknote, in 1814. Since then, Joh. Enschedé has printed the banknotes of the State of the Netherlands. In 1866, Joh. Enschedé began printing stamps.

Enschedé began manufacturing type in 1743 after purchasing the foundry of Hendrik Wetstein, and the foundry soon became the most important part of Enschedé’s business. The famous punch-cutter Joan Michael Fleischman was employed there in the eighteenth century. Its type business flourished throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and in the twentieth century the foundry achieved widespread international acclaim through the design and production of types of Jan van Krimpen. During the foundry type era, Enschedé types were distributed in the United States by Continental Type Founders Association.

Today Joh. Enschedé specialises in security document design and printing (banknotes, postage stamps, parking permits, etc.), commercial print (annual reports, catalogues) and online document publication.

The company is a certified Euro banknotes printer, and produces euro notes for five EU countries.

Joh. Enschedé prints stamps for more than sixty countries.

Joh. Enschedé is among the oldest family businesses in the Netherlands. It started as a small book printing shop in 1703 and developed into a major company in Haarlem, renowned for its beautiful print work. Internationally, Joh. Enschedé is especially known for its appealing stamps and banknotes. Driven by particular attention to detail and technical expertise, Joh. Enschedé is the print specialist for special, secure, and highly trustworthy print work and related services.

Nigerian Security Printing and Minting Company Limited Plc

Nigerian Security Printing and Minting Company Limited Plc

The Nigerian Security Printing and Minting Company Limited Plc is the Nigerian banknote printer and mint. It is located in both Abuja and Lagos and is majority-owned by the government of Nigeria.

In addition to printing the banknotes and the postal orders of Nigeria, it has struck some of the coins of Nigeria. It also prints stamps.

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) is the sole issuer of legal tender money throughout the Federation. It controls the volume of money supply in the economy in order to ensure monetary and price stability. The Currency & Branch Operations Department of the CBN is in charge of currency management, through the procurement, distribution/supply, processing, reissue and disposal/disintegration of bank notes and coins.

The privatization of the Mint by President Olusegun Obasanjo in February 2002 was controversial, and Managing Director Sambo Dasuki resigned in protest.

In 2006, the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Charles Chukwuma Soludo, “regretted that Nigeria was the only country in the world that had a mint but still imported currency,” and announced that privatization was on track.

In 2010, Chief Executive Mr. Emmanuel Ehidiamhen Okoyomon was described as “basking in the genteel applause that has characterized the turning around of the Mint.”

As of February 2015, “Naira notes and coins are printed/minted by the Nigerian Security Printing and Minting Plc (NSPM) Plc and other overseas printing/minting companies and issued by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).”

HISTORY OF “Nigerian Security Printing and Minting Company Limited”:

The Nigerian Security Printing and Minting PLC apart from being the foremost in Africa, is the only full-fledged security printing organisation in the whole of African sub-region. It was established in 1963 by the government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in partnership with De La Rue of the U.K. With so many staff, the company is wholly managed and operated by Nigerians.

Since 1965 when The MINT, as we are known, began full operation, we have been producing currency notes and coins for the Central bank of Nigeria as well as a wide range of security documents for federal, state and local government establishments, commercial banks, blue chip companies amongst others. Our operational capability compares favourably with any international security printing establishment of high repute due to our huge investment in high technology equipment, technical training, and calibre of human resources, research and development.

The MINT which has been self financing since inception has archived considerable business growth to date. This success is attributed mainly to our pragmatic, innovative and result-oriented management policy, as well as to the hard work, dedication, skill and resourcefulness of its highly motivated workforce. Our commitment to total security, integrity and high quality product and service delivery has earned the company an enviable position and the tag of the most reputable security printing establishment in Africa.

banknote printing company

Giesecke & Devrient Banknote Company

Giesecke & Devrient (G&D) is a German company headquartered in Munich that provides banknote and securities printing, smart cards, and cash handling systems.

Founded in 1852 by Hermann Giesecke and Alphonse Devrient, the firm initially specialized in high-quality printing, notably currency and securities printing. From the 1850s to the 1870s the firm printed some of the important biblical editions of Constantin von Tischendorf. The partnership’s reputation for quality work was confirmed at the 1867 international exhibition in Paris.

Giesecke & Devrient supplied currency during the inflation in the Weimar Republic in the 1920s, one of the most prominent cases of hyperinflation. It also printed tickets to the 1936 Olympics in Germany and did business with Spain under Franco.

In the modern period, G&D has expanded operations to include banknote processing, smart cards, identification systems, and e-payments. The firm is the world’s second largest supplier of banknotes, with annual revenues of $2.45 billion. They have over 8,000 employees, and some 50 subsidiaries and joint ventures around the world. The company operates printing facilities in Germany (Munich and Leipzig), as well as Ottawa, Canada, and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. G&D currently supplies Euro notes for the German Bundesbank; and the company supplies banknotes for many other nations.

In 1989, the Komori technology for printing banknotes was introduced in Europe when G&D ordered a small printing machine.

In 2000, Giesecke & Devrient established its North American headquarters in Dulles, Virginia, a suburb of Washington, D.C.

The firm produces special paper for use in instruments such as banknotes, checks, bonds, certificates, passports and other identification, and tickets.

In addition to Germany, Giesecke & Devrient has printed banknotes for other various countries through the years, including Cambodia, Croatia, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Jamaica, Peru, Zaire, and Zimbabwe. In Japan, G&D is active in the fields of cards and banknotes.

In October 2002, Giesecke & Devrient, along with the Information Security Group, Royal Holloway, University of London and Vodafone set up the Smart Card Centre, which is part of the ISG at Royal Holloway.

Giesecke & Devrient have a history of doing business with Rhodesia and its successor state Zimbabwe going back to 1965, and they have been supplying paper for banknotes to the government of Zimbabwe throughout the hyperinflation in Zimbabwe.

In June 2008 U.S. officials announced they would not take any action against the firm. It was reported that on 1 July 2008 company’s Management Board decided to cease delivering banknote paper to the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe with immediate effect. The decision was in response to an “official request” from the German government and calls for international sanctions by the European Union and the United Nations. Dr. Karsten Ottenberg, CEO and Chairman of the G&D Management Board, explained:

“Our decision is a reaction to the political tension in Zimbabwe, which is mounting significantly rather than easing as expected, and takes account of the critical evaluation by the international community, German government and general public.”

AMERICAN BANKNOTE PRINTED CHINESE YUAN

The American Bank Note Company

The American Bank Note Company was a major worldwide engraver of national currency and postage stamps. Currently it engraves and prints stock and bond certificates. It is based in Fort Lee, New Jersey.

Origins
Robert Scot, the first official engraver of the young U.S. Mint, began the company that would eventually grow into the nation’s premier high security engraving and printing firm, the American Bank Note Company.

Founded in 1795 as Murray, Draper, Fairham & Company (after Scot’s three partners), the company prospered as the young United States population expanded and financial institutions blossomed. Its products included superior quality stock and bond certificates, paper currency for the nation’s thousands of state-chartered banks, postage stamps (from 1879 to 1894), and a wide variety of other engraved and printed items.

After 1857
Following the Panic of 1857, seven of the nation’s most prominent security printers merged to form the American Bank Note Company on April 29, 1858. The new company made New York City its headquarters. Less than two years later, a handful of the remaining independent bank note printers merged to form the National Bank Note Company.

To be close to the stock exchanges, brokerage firms, and banks in lower Manhattan, the American Bank Note Company established its New York City headquarters in the Merchants Exchange Building at 55 Wall Street. The company moved its office and plant to 142 Broadway (at the corner of Liberty Street) in 1867, to another new facility at 78–86 Trinity Place in 1882, and again to 70 Broad Street in 1908.

The first paper currency was circulated by the US Treasury Department following the outbreak of the Civil War. Congress passed authorizing legislation for $60 million worth of these “Demand Notes” on July 17 and August 5, 1861. Under contract with the government, the novel paper money, called “greenbacks” by the public, was produced by the American Bank Note Co. and the National Bank Note Co. A total of 7.25 million notes were produced in denominations of $5, $10, and $20. In an interesting historical sidelight, American and National were also producing paper money for the Confederacy at the same time.

Following the initial production of U.S. currency by the government’s Bureau of Engraving and Printing in 1862, ABNCo sought a new source of demand for its services. They found it in foreign lands. The company would eventually go on to supply security paper and bank notes to 115 foreign countries.[2]

In 1877, pursuant to a law enacted by Congress, the U. S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing became the sole producer of all United States currency. The security printing industry, finding a good deal of its work had evaporated, accordingly underwent a second major consolidation in 1879, as American absorbed the National Bank Note and Continental Bank Note companies. At the time of the merger, Continental held the contract to produce U. S. Postage stamps, and this production continued under the American aegis.

In 1887, ABNCo won the second four-year contract to engrave and print Postal notes for the U.S. post office. (New York’s Homer Lee Bank Note Company produced these notes during the first contract period.) American assigned Thomas F. Morris, its Chief Designer, the task of re-designing this early money order. The paper for this contract (as for all Postal Notes and a massive number of official U.S. high security documents) was produced by Crane and Co. of Dalton, Massachusetts.

In 1891 the American Bank Note Company began producing a new form of money for a longtime customer: the American Express “Travelers Cheque.” In its first year, American Express sold $9,120 worth of its new invention. During 2000, sales of American Express Traveler’s Cheques totaled $24.6 billion.

In 1894, ABNCo completed the final contract for the private printing of American stamps. Perhaps their most popular stamps were the one cent to $5 issues commemorating the 1892–93 Columbian Exposition in Chicago. On July 1, 1894 American delivered its entire stamp-producing operation to the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Washington, D.C., where U.S. stamps were still printed up into the 1990s.

Twentieth Century
In 1943–44 American Bank Note Company was contracted by the United States Government’s Bureau of Engraving and Printing to produce the Overrun Countries series stamps.

ABnote Group
American Bank Note Company is a subsidiary of American Banknote Corporation and ABnote Group: http://abnote.com/

Today, following a variety of financial transformations, the American Banknote Corporation produces a wide variety of secure and official documents. With operations in Australia, New Zealand, United States, Canada, South Africa, Czech Republic, England and France, its products range from currencies and credit cards to passports, driver’s licenses, and birth certificates.

Building
The American Bank Note Company Building was built in 1908. Former headquarters at 70 Broad St,. Manhattan, NY. The company sold it in 1988. It is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places and is designated a New York City Landmark.
