• Recommendations for recognizing counterfeit bills and coins
The design of the coins may be imperfect, and the coin may look "swollen" or deformed.

The images may not be centered correctly.

Bills contain a security thread on the front, a succession of silver-plated segments which, when held against the light, show a dark band in which you can read "BCRA" , together with the value of the bill. You will find this band on $10, $20, $50 and $100 peso bills.

All the bills have a "water mark", an image of a founding father which can be seen against the light.

Counterfeit bills imitate the water mark but it can be seen without holding the bills up to the light.

• Recommendations for recognizing Evita Peron counterfeit bills
Evita bills has various security measures:
- The design has a great definition.
- Has watermark (portrait of Evita and her signature).
- In the face of the note, on the right, there is a number 100 printed with special ink that changes color depending on the angle at which we see it.
- To touch we note that the images have relief.
- Security thread hundred crosses the center.
- Under ultraviolet light some leaves change color to yellow.
