Title: Banknote tracking by BOC
Post by: Rupiah on May 21, 2015, 07:56:23 pm
This is taken from the thread on the commemorative $20 banknote:

The BoC is data mining using the currency's serial numbers, and are using the $20 commemorative polymer note as a pilot for this new process.

If anyone is interested more on this topic and some of the possibilities with respect to tracking of banknotes from a technological perspective may find this paper interesting:
