Anti-counterfeit markers. French 50 franc banknote under ultraviolet (UV) light. The fluorescent marker (the lamb at lower left) is invisible unless the note is held under an ultraviolet lamp. Another anti counterfeit measure, the watermark, can be seen above the lamb. Modern colour photocopier technology has prompted a range of anti-counterfeit measures to thwart the forgers. The lamb represents a character from the book 'The Little Prince' by Antoine Saint-Exupery. The author of this book was a famous aviator and writer; his portrait is seen at centre right and in the watermark.
