*Illuminating the Europa series : Discover the new €10...*
"The Europa series €5 started circulating in the euro area on 2 May 2013. On 13 January 2014 Yves Mersch, member of the ECB’s Executive Board, unveiled the second banknote of this series, the €10, at a press conference in Frankfurt am Main. The security features of this banknote were made public several weeks earlier in agame that is still online. The new €10 will start circulating on 23 September 2014. The other banknotes in the series will be introduced gradually over several years, in ascending order. The denominations remain unchanged: €5, €10, €20, €50, €100, €200 and €500. Press releases
The ECB and the national central banks of the Eurosystem are conducting an information campaign about the Europa series, which includes a dedicated website. The campaign aims to help the public recognise the new notes and their security features. In April 2013, the Eurosystem sent information materials on the new series and specifically on the €5 to professional cash handlers working in over 3 million shops and banks in the euro area. It will be doing the same for the new €10 in 2014.
In addition, the information campaign on the new €10 will include a Eurosystem Partnership Programme to help banknote equipment manufacturers (BEMs) and suppliers on the one hand, and their clients and users on the other, to prepare for the introduction of the new banknotes. There are many advantages in becoming a partner ahead of the issuance of the new €10.
Lists are available on the ECB’s website of banknote authentication devices and handling machines which have been tested by the Eurosystem central banks and been adapted to recognise the new €5 banknotes. Similar lists for the new €10 banknotes will be published in 2014 after the machines and devices have undergone the same testing. Of course, the new €5 and €10 can also be easily checked using the simple"FEEL, LOOK and TILT" method, as with the first series of euro banknotes." ECB
