South Africa Reserve Bank’s printing presses sit idle since February 2011

According to an article in Times Live dated 9 July 2011, the South African Reserve Bank has outsourced printing of the 100-rand note to Sweden following the discovery of missing security features on notes previously printed by the SA Bank Note Company. Other problems with other denominations have left the SABN presses sitting idle since February. The article also mentions SABN’s printing of notes for Zambia and Namibia.
