Spending a lot of money to make our currency less subject to counterfeit. I read somewhere that the first counterfeit twenties to be discovered were identified only because they turned up the day before the issue date for the official ones.

There are counterfeits and there are "successful" counterfeits ~ two quite difference pieces of business.

Ordinarily counterfeits are easily caught due to the many security features now included in our money. "Successful" counterfeits are quite rare since those security features are so difficult to copy.
