WATCH: New €100 and €200 banknotes


The new €100 and €200 banknotes - which were unveiled on September 17th 2018 - will start circulating on Tuesday, (May 28th). They will complete the issuance of the Europa series.

The Europa series of banknotes have been gradually introduced over the past number of years. The €5, €10, €20 and €50 began circulating in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2017, respectively.

Although the ECB has decided to stop producing the €500 banknote, the first series €500 remains legal tender.

Europa

Two of the security features on the new notes contain a portrait of Europa, a figure from Greek mythology because of her link to the continent. The image of Europa was taken from a vase in the Louvre in Paris.

The ECB and the national central banks (NCBs) of the Eurosystem have developed the bank notes with enhanced security features.

The new euro banknotes are also more durable than the first series.

The first series of euro banknotes will continue to be issued alongside the Europa series of notes until the remaining stocks have been used up.
