  • Colour-changing ink partially overprints the smaller transparent window and can be seen through the back of the note, producing a colour-changing effect.
  • Raised printing is featured on the large multi-colour numerals or the text reading “Bank of Guyana”. The raised printing can be detected by running a finger across these areas.
