Which Country Prints Kenyan Money

The banknotes are printed in Nairobi by security printer De La Rue, a British compay. On 31 May 2019, after the government issued a new family of bank notes, the company was contracted a three year deal to print them out. The money printing facility is located on Thika Road, next to the Kenya School of Monetary Studies.

De La Rue, which has operated in Kenya for more than 25 years, says it is investing more in its factory in Nairobi, as part of a long term plan to become a regional and Pan African security printer. Besides banknotes, the company also makes cheque books and passports, among other important documents. It was also the first in the region to be credited for Visa Card and MasterCard personalisation and has recently invested in the latest chip and pin smart technology and capabilities.

The latest deal with the CBK will enable the government to comply with the Constitution, which says "notes and coins issued by the central bank may bear images that symbolise an aspect of Kenya but shall not bear the portrait of an individual."
