On 5 September 2018 the Czech National Bank will put into circulation a new 2018 version of the CZK100 banknote. The 1995 and 1997 versions of the note will remain legal tender. The 1993 version banknote is nolonger legal tender but is still exchangeable at the Czech National Bank. 

In this leaflet you will find elements from the first and second categories (including UV elements), which differ on the three versions of the CZK 100 banknote. 

Charles IV (Czech: Karel IV., German: Karl IV., Latin: Carolus IV; 14 May 1316 – 29 November 1378), born Wenceslaus,was the first King of Bohemia to become Holy Roman Emperor. He was a member of the House of Luxembourg from his father's side and the Czech House of Přemyslid from his mother's side; he emphasized the latter due to his lifelong affinity for the Czech side of his inheritance, and also because his direct ancestors in the Přemyslid line included two saints.

He was the eldest son and heir of King John of Bohemia, who died at the Battle of Crécy on 26 August 1346. His mother, Elizabeth of Bohemia, was the sister of King Wenceslas III, the last of the male Přemyslid rulers of Bohemia. Charles inherited the County of Luxembourg from his father and was elected king of the Kingdom of Bohemia. On 2 September 1347, Charles was crowned King of Bohemia.

Like the previous versions, the new version of the banknote is based on a design by Oldřich Kulhánek from engravings and line drawings by Miloš Ondráček (face side) and Václav Fait (reverse side) 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. A new feature of the banknote is that its protection against counterfeiting has been enhanced significantly. The existing protective elements have been changed and new ones added.

The protective elements used can be divided into several categories:

1. First-category elements, visible to the naked eye, are intended for the public.

2. Second-category elements, visible using simple aids, are intended for those who receive cash at counters and other locations allowing the use of such aids.

3. Elements from other categories, only visible using more sophisticated devices and sensors, are intended  for profes
