Judges from the design of the engraving presses in the lowest image, the bank notes were printed under very high pressure.
On September 8, 1855 L'Illustration, Journal Universel published on p. 173 an article describing the state printing facility in Vienna directed by Alois Auer. Images showed their type foundry and stereotype foundry, their state of the art press room, and perhaps more unusually, their facility for printing bank notes for the Austrian government. Notably these were all printed by hand from engraved plates.
On June 9, 1860 the Illustrirte Zeitung published an article on the new high speed self-feeding web presses that Alois Auer introduced at the Staatsdruckerei in Vienna. In the image of the new, expanded machine room at the foot of the page we see the new presses on the left and the older models that required hand-feeding on the right. All the presses were belt-driven by a steam engine in floor below.
