On 1 April 2008 the Czech National Bank will put into circulation a new 2008 version of the CZK 1000 banknote. The 1996 version of the note will remain legal tender. The 1993 version has already ceased to be legal tender but will remain exchangeable at the Czech National Bank.

Information on the 1993 version of the banknote can be found in the CNB leaflet A new series of Czech banknotes – CZK 1000. The differences between the 1993 and 1996 versions are described in the leaflet Czech banknotes – 1000 Kč 1996 version. 

 The 2008 version of the banknote is again based on a design by Oldřich Kulhánek from engravings and line drawings by Václav Fajt as adapted by František Dvořák and is produced at the State Printing Office in Prague. The note’s dimensions and basic parameters, including paper type, are the same as before. However, its protection against counterfeiting has been enhanced significantly. The existing protective elements have been changed and new ones added, and other alterations have been made to the design. 

František Palacký (Czech pronunciation: [ˈfraɲcɪʃɛk ˈpalatskiː]; 14 June 1798 – 26 May 1876) was a Czech historian and politician, the most influential person of the Czech National Revival, called "Father of the Nation".

Eagle spread its wings over the Archbishop's Castle in Kroměříž, where a constitution preparing parliament of Austrian Empire was held in 1848 The protective elements used can be divided into several categories. The first category includes elements visible to the naked eye and intended for the public, while the second consists of elements that are visible using simple aids and intended for entities that accept cash at counters and other locations allowing the use of such aids. The elements from the other categories are only visible using more sophisticated devices and sensors.

They are intended for professionals and for automated cash handling equipment or to affect the operation of reproducing devices. In this leaflet you will only find elements from the first and second categories (including UV elements), and only where they differ on the three versions of the CZK 1000 banknote. A general overview of the protective elements on Czech banknotes can be found in the CNB leaflet Protective elements on Czech banknotes . Some elements from the other categories (especially IR elements) are available to professionals through specialised information systems.
