    These links above show what real notes look like. But what are the features to look for in the fake notes?

    We keep getting told that the notes are virtually impossible to fake but those police photos look pretty convincing.

    Maybe that's why they're developing new notes?

    EDIT:
    Adding this photo.

    I've been told that the fake notes crumple like paper when you crush them in your hand but true notes "spring" back open.
    Don't take this as gospel for every potential type of counterfeit though.

    Every counterfeit banknote I've handled felt wrong just rubbing my fingers over it.

    The intaglio printing process creates raised ridges in all the very fine swirly lines so the notes have some texture to them.

    No idea how this guy was making his, but it's very difficult to create that effect in combination with all the other security features (like the aforementioned "springy-ness"). They can often get one of the features to a decent enough standard, but at the expense of one of the others e.g. you can get a good window, but not good texture or you can get good texture, but not a good crumple.

    Not related to counterfeit Aussie currency; one of my human hosts used to work in a major Las Vegas resort that'd regularly find counterfeit US Dollars in the count room.

    They were required to complete a US Secret Service form for every single note. As you can imagine when hundreds of counterfeit bills are identified in a busy week, this generate a hefty volume of paperwork.

    Here is a link to current iteration of that form: http://www.secretservice.gov/forms/ssf1604.pdf
