We provide secure public currency solutions for billions of people

Ever since the printing of our first banknote in 1854, G+D has been synonymous with securing public currencies. In a globalized economy and dynamic world markets societies rely on secure access to public currencies. While physical cash remains a trusted public good, central banks globally are already working on public forms of money for the digital age – Central Bank Digital Currencies. As a market leader and trusted partner for currency technology, we provide highly secure and efficient solutions at all stages of the currency cycle – both in physical and digital ecosystems.

Currencies are both the foundation and operating system of economies around the globe. In times of heightened volatility, stable supply of cash plays a central role in a functioning economic system.  Cash has lost none of its significance: its circulation is growing worldwide and consumers use it more frequently for store of value. Players in the cash cycle need to ensure a resilient and efficient cash cycle that can respond flexibly to fluctuations in cash requirements. At the same time, sustainability is becoming increasingly important. 

Currency technology has expanded from the classic physical cash cycle to match the growing digitization of payments. While cash provides value for society by being universally accessible and protecting privacy, it is not digitally available. Central bank digital currency (CBDC) unites the benefits of cash with the convenience of the digital world and promises to further extend financial inclusion. More than 130 central banks worldwide are already working on a central bank digital currency. 

What sets G+D apart

We offer an end-to-end portfolio for the cash cycle that matches the different needs of our customer – including banknote solutions, currency management and Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDC). As a global market leader, G+D is the trusted partner of 145 central banks worldwide and all other players in the currency cycle.  

Reliable security is an important prerequisite for maintaining public trust in cash. Together with our clients, we create customized banknote solutions that combine utmost security with beautifully crafted designs. Actively addressing climate protection, G+D is determined to make banknotes and the entire cash cycle more sustainable without compromising security and durability. 

Drawing on our decade-long expertise in currency management, we provide public institutions with the critical infrastructure to ensure cash supply and optimize the cash cycle. We make banknote processing hyper efficient through automation and robotics, intra-logistic standardization and data-driven solutions – from refining existing cash centers to providing large-scale turnkey solutions.
