New €100 and €200 banknotes with new and upgraded security features start circulating on 28 May. They are easy to check using the “feel, look and tilt” method.
A satellite hologram and an enhanced emerald number make the banknotes more resistant to counterfeiting. While the emerald number is present on all the other notes of the Europa series, this enhanced version also shows € symbols inside the number. Their height is the same as the €50 banknote, which makes them easier to handle and process by machines.
They will continue to circulate alongside the old notes, which will be gradually withdrawn from circulation.
