Our Story

The Start of APIS Company goes back to 1991. In that year, the core team was formed. Immediately after the establishment of the company the first challenge came. Central Bank of Czechoslovakia had to urgently deal with the increase of counterfeits. The increase was enormous, in 1989 it was 83 pieces of counterfeits and in 1992 this figure was 13,333 pieces. This problem has been solved by APIS. The company came up with a currency expert system that provided timely and accurate information about banknotes, but not only about the banknotes and security features but also about dangerous counterfeits. Finally, in 1992, came into the world the first-ever electronic reference database - the Catalogue of Currencies.


In 2013 at the 15th Currency Conference in Athens, Greece, APIS was awarded by the International Association of Currency Affairs (IACA) in the category "The best new currency product".
