On 1 April 2009 the Czech National Bank will put into circulation a new 2009 version of the CZK 500 banknote.

The 1995 and 1997 versions of the note will remain legal tender. The 1993 version has already ceased to be legal tender but will remain exchangeable in banks. Information on the 1993 version of the banknote can be found in the CNB leaflet A new series of Czech banknotes – CZK 500. The differences between the 1993 and 1995 versions are described in the leaflet Czech banknotes – 500 Kč 1995 version. The differences in the 1997 version can be found in the leaflet Czech banknotes – 500 Kč 1997 version. 

The 2009 version of the banknote is again based on a design by Oldřich Kulhánek, from engravings and line drawings by Václav Fait (face side) and Miloš Ondráček (reverse side), as adapted by Oldřich Kulhánek (optically variable ink) and František Dvořák (white line watermark and UV ornaments) 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.

Božena Němcová (Czech pronunciation: [ˈboʒɛna ˈɲɛmtsovaː]) (4 February 1820[citation needed] in Vienna – 21 January 1862 in Prague) was a Czech writer of the final phase of the Czech National Revival movement.

Her image features on the 500 CZK denomination of the banknotes of the Czech koruna.

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 four versions of the CZK 500 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.
