According to a statement from the Central Bank of Malta, the €20 and €50 notes were the most frequently falsified during the second half of 2020 whilst also marking an increase in fake €5 and €10 notes.

The Central Bank went on to call for the public’s vigilance when conducted transactions with bank notes and to always check for genuine characteristics.
