Watermark bar pattern

When the banknote is held up to the light, two vertical watermark bars (three bars for the 10000 yen note, one for the 1000 yen note) become visible. This feature is more difficult to reproduce with personal computers or color copiers than the traditional watermark.


(3) Latent image

When the banknote is viewed from a certain angle, the number "5000"appears on the center bottom of the front side, and the word "NIPPON" ("Japan" in Japanese) on the right in the middle of the back side.




(4) Pearl ink

When viewed from different angles, a semi-transparent pattern printed with pink pearl ink appears in the blank areas of the left and right margins of the front of the note.


(5) Microprinting

Like notes issued since December 1, 1993 (with serial numbers in brown), the new 5000 yen note has the words "NIPPON GINKO" ("Bank of Japan" in Japanese) printed in micro letters. Some of the micro letters are made even smaller on the new note than those on the current note. Also, micro letters of different sizes are included in the background design.

(6) Luminescent ink

As in notes issued since December 1, 1993 (with serial numbers in brown), the Governor's seal on the front side glows orange under ultraviolet light. Likewise, some parts of the background pattern fluoresce yellowish-green.


(7) Intaglio printing

Raised printing is used for some features of the new note. The ink on the new note is raised higher than the ink on the current note.


(8) Tactile marks(intaglio printing)

To assist the visually impaired in detecting the note by touch, a recognition symbol with a rougher texture, printed intaglio, is adopted instead of the watermark symbols used for the current note.
