Universal design has today become a necessary consideration for banknotes. Against this background, related efforts are being made around the world, including work to enhance the identifiability of different denominations.

The need for products based on the concept of universal design has also increased rapidly in Japan in recent years. This situation is partly triggered by the fact that Japan has one of the world’s longest life expectancies with one of its most rapidly aging populations (World Health Organization), and the number of visually impaired people is expected to increase further in the future.

Against such a background, this paper describes the National Printing Bureau’s various efforts to enhance the identifiability of Bank of Japan notes by visually impaired people. These include improvements to the transparent hologram layer of Series-E 5,000 yen notes and the development of an iPhone banknote identification app called U-Qui-Ch-kun.
