Some of the security feature are there is a metallic thread on the back. There are two watermarks: on the left is a church steeple, on the right is the denomination "10". A black strip runs through the note, when looking at it from the back, the metallic thread should line up perfectly with the black strip when held up to the light. Next to the church on the bill is a banner when held up to the light it should match up perfectly to the other side, which has the same design. When tilted at a 45 degree angle the area around the church steeple should change color, also when you do it to the horizontal banner on the bottom the letters "PP" will appear. Under UV Light the threads and the up and down strip should glow.[4]
