  • Optical ink: the number 100 is printed with color changing ink with a dynamic chess effect that changes from emerald green to sapphire blue (SPARK).
  • Security thread: embedded in the paper and partially protruding from the reverse side with a light repeating text "BNB 100" and with a dynamic chess effect, changing its color from emerald green to sapphire blue. The image of the repeating text "BNB 100" is read from the front when the banknote is placed against a light source.
  • High-resolution watermark: observed when the banknote is placed against a light source. It consists of a high resolution halftone image of the portrait of Aleko Konstantinov. The images are also seen on the reverse side of the banknote.
