Initials of the European Central Bank

In this series of banknotes the initials of the European Central Bank are shown in ten linguistic variants instead of five, due to the enlargement of the European Union in 2004, 2007 and 2013 – BCE ECB ЕЦБ EZB EKP EKT ESB EKB BĊE EBC.

“Euro” in different alphabets

The name of the currency has been written in the Cyrillic alphabet (EBPO) since Bulgaria joined the European Union in 2007, in addition to the Latin (EURO) and Greek (EYPΩ) alphabets.

Map of Europe

Have you noticed the map of Europe on the back of the Europa series banknotes? It now includes the islands of Malta and Cyprus – two of the countries which have joined the European Union since the launch of the first series.

Architectural style

The €100 banknote shows baroque and rococo-style architecture from 1600 to 1750.

Signatures

To date, Mario Draghi is the only President to have signed the Europa series banknotes.

Security features

Raised print

Feel the banknote. On the front there are short raised lines on the left and right edges. These lines, as well as the main image, the lettering and the large value numeral, feel thicker.

Portrait watermark

Hold the banknote against the light. An image of Europa, a copy of the main image and the value of the banknote appear on the left.

Portrait window

Look at the banknote against the light. The window in the hologram on the right becomes transparent and reveals a portrait of Europa on both sides of the note.

Emerald number

Tilt the banknote. The shiny number in the bottom-left corner changes colour from emerald green to deep blue and displays an effect of the light that moves up and down. The new €100 and €200 banknotes also show tiny € symbols inside the number.

Portrait hologram

Tilt the banknote. The hologram – the silvery stripe on the right – reveals a portrait of Europa. The stripe also shows a copy of the main image and the value of the banknote.

Satellite hologram

The satellite hologram – a feature unique to the €100 and €200 notes – is at the top of the silvery stripe. When you tilt the banknote, it shows tiny € symbols that move around the number. Those symbols become clearer under direct light.
