On 5 September 2018 the Czech National Bank will put into circulation a new 2018 version of the CZK 200 banknote. The 1995 and 1998 versions of the note will remain legal tender. The 1993 version banknote is no longer legal tender but is still exchangeable at the Czech National Bank. 

John Amos Comenius (Czech: Jan Amos Komenský; German: Johann Amos Comenius; Latinized: Ioannes Amos Comenius; 28 March 1592, Moravian Slovakia – 15 November 1670, Amsterdam) was a Czech philosopher, pedagogue and theologian from the Margraviate of Moraviawho is considered the father of modern education.He served as the last bishop of the Unity of the Brethren before becoming a religious refugee and one of the earliest champions of universal education, a concept eventually set forth in his book Didactica Magna. As an educator and theologian, he led schools and advised governments across Protestant Europe through the middle of the seventeenth century.

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 professionals and for automated cash handling equipment or to affect the operation of reproducing devices.

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 200 banknote.
