The works of Švabinský are accompanied by an unfailing love for nature and, in his portraits, one can see a number of famous figures of that time. He belongs to a generation of artists who laid the foundations for Czech modern creative art of the 20th century. Švabinský also significantly contributed to promotion of the Czech visual art all over Europe.

The commemorative banknote visually presents the latest trends in the field of security elements applicable to protection against forgery of banknotes, documents and other securities. For example, the SPARK-live security element with a two-colour application of a protective feature, which is used for the first time in the world on our Ninety Crown Banknote.

Also worth a mention is the VARIFEYE ColourChange foil; a security feature with an impressive transparent effect in the shape of a golden metallic butterfly. Other features located on the band of the foil together with the VARIFEYE butterfly are formed by silver hologram elements and micro-mirror technology for maximum security.

Another element is the GALAXY – security thread, a positioned protective element that combines the protection of the print by changing of the image and colours. Changes to the image of MAX/STC and green/blue colourful shift occur simultaneously when the feature is tilted. At the same time, a slight spatial effect can also be observed. The GALAXY element is part of the window metallic band which is formed by the design of silver relief butterflies and passes through the entire width of the banknote. The so-called tilting effect protection element uses the relief features of intaglio printing technology. When viewed from the front, the feature blends with the surrounding surface of the design. When tilted against light that reflects the structure of the lines, the hidden element is visible.

A big point of interest is the sculpture of the face of the Republic formed by coherently modulated micro text. You can reveal the story of Max Švabinský that is hidden here only using a magnifying glass. The commemorative certificate contains a total of 36 protective elements detected only by the naked eye or laboratory methods and resources.

The “Ninety” commemorative banknote combines the traditional workmanship with modern procedures and technologies used upon the banknote genesis.
