Enschedé, an Authentix company and world-renowned security printer, in partnership with The Global Note B.V., announces the launch of the Golden Bergkamp commemorative banknote in honor of football legend Dennis Bergkamp. This collectible banknote celebrates the legendary goal scored by Bergkamp during the quarter-final match between the Netherlands and Argentina in the 1998 World Cup.
The exclusive gold-laced collectible note, offered in a limited edition by The Global Note™, contains many unique features, including 23-karat gold and sophisticated microtext. The collectible banknote was designed and printed by Royal Joh. Enschedé, a central bank currency printer for over 200 years and is only available at www.theglobalnote.com. For football fans and enthusiasts, a special edition is also available in the characteristic colors of the Dutch national teams.
