Interesting notes about the EURO common currency Banknotes

Interesting discoveries about the European common currency: EURO currency

I hope collector's can contribute their own ideas.

The banknotes in EURO:

In the group of 7 currency denominations, the common currency of 24 European countries, the Euro, is being used, we see each denomination corresponding to each architectural style designed on each of these notes as the picture shows :

* 5 Euro: represents the Classique architecture,
* 10 Euro: represents Roman architecture,
* 20 Euro: represents Gothique architecture,
* 50 Euro: represents Renaissance architecture,
* 100 Euro: represents the Baroque architecture,
* 200 Euro: represents Moderne architecture,
* 500 Euro: represents the Contemporain architecture.

Euro each denomination is of different size, to help the visually impaired easily recognize the value of each note.

That's certainly how they looked originally, but in 2019, the ECB stopped issuing the 500 Euro note, and brought out a series 2 of the 100 and 200 Euro notes, with improved security features.

200 Euro Banknote, Series 2, issued from 2019.

Mario Draghi signed both the initial print runs, but Christine Lagarde became the new signature mid 2020.

Obviously, despite the German penchant for cash payments, the actual usage of cash as a means of settlement "has dropped off a cliff" during the recent pandemic. Great for Bankers (and Governments, wanting to trace all peoples cash), but actually quite a hardship "for the little people" who rely on cash to see them from one week, to the next.

Be interesting to see if we "step back to cash", but they could certainly dispense with the top three values, as very few shops ever took them (in France).

New designs were not issued for just the €100 and €200, but for entire series except for the €500 (image below from Wikipedia).

Euro_banknotes,_Europa_series.png

The dates of issue for the so-called new "Europa series" were as follows:
2013 - €5
2014 - €10
2015 - €20
2017 - €50
2019 - €100 and €200

Apart from improved security features, the new notes feature acronyms for the European Central Bank in more languages than the original notes (such as Maltese, BĊE = Bank Ċentrali Ewropew).

In practice, only the €5 to €50 banknotes are in regular day-to-day use (at least here in Malta). The €100 is seen sometimes but not very frequently, while the €200 and €500 are practically never used.

The highest denomination is being phased out throughout the EU at the moment since there are concerns that it is widely used for illegal activities - for this reason there wasn't a €500 note in the new series.

It's so difficult to see a 500 € banknote, so in some countries like Spain, you can name them "Bin Laden"

And I can confirm that the new designs are for all Euro Banknotes. I have seen all of them, and there are the same banknotes (colour, ...) with improved security to avoid illegal copies of them
