De La Rue, which designs and prints the currencies of more than 150 countries, yesterday said that it was on course to produce 6.4 billion banknotes and 9000 tonnes of paper this year as its customers commit to previously delayed orders.

The company's shares increased by nearly 6 per cent, or 51.5p, to 953.5p, although De La Rue said that increasing competition from other banknotes printers was also driving down prices.
