Counterfeit Prevention

The Central Bank of Samoa takes counterfeiting of the Samoan currency (bank notes and coins) very seriously and responds by researching and developing new security features that are difficult to copy but easy to use. The Bank works closely with local law enforcement to monitor and respond to counterfeiting activity and also promotes awareness how the public can easily detect counterfeits from genuine currency.
