                 AMERICAN BANKNOTE CORPORATION
   ANNOUNCES NONPAYMENT OF INTEREST ON 11 5/8% SENIOR NOTES
            AND CONTINUING RESTRUCTURING DISCUSSIONS


NEW YORK, August 31, 1999 - American Banknote Corporation announced today
that the applicable 30-day grace period for payment of interest on its 11 5/8%
Senior Notes due August 1, 2002 has expired and that the Company will not make
the interest payment on the notes.

The Company's advisor, the Blackstone Group, continues to hold discussions
with an informal committee of the 11 1/4% Senior Subordinated Note holders,
who hold more than 85% of those notes, on the terms of a consensual
restructuring converting all or a substantial portion of that debt to equity.
However, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to reach any
agreement with the debt holders.

American Banknote Corporation is a leading global full-service provider of
secure transaction solutions in carefully selected markets along three major
product groups: Transaction Cards & Systems, Printing Services & Document
Management, and Security Printing Solutions. A combined strategy of operating
along product lines and constant expansion of transaction activities worldwide
reflects the rapidly changing field of electronic commerce.
