More practical and safer, thus are the new Euro 100 and 200 banknotes

Rome/ More practical, more colourful and above all more difficult to counterfeit, this is the new Euro 100 and 200 banknotes which enter into circulation and conclude the Europa series, the second printing of Euro banknotes which began in 2013 with those of five euros.

 

The Euro 100 banknotes have been printed in Spain, France, Germany, Austria and Italy, and Euro 200 in Austria, France and Italy. In the latter country, they have been manufactured in Rome, in the printing house located inside their central bank.

For the first time in the history of the euro, the ECB and the Bank of Italy have organized an informative tour with a small group of media, including EFE, inside a printing press dedicated to producing these tickets.

In the printing house in Rome, more than 200 employees have worked for months and have printed millions and millions of euros which they have guarded with maximum security in a large safe, which they call “The Sacristy”, to be later transported in trucks to the different central banks of the countries of the Euro-zone.

These new banknotes, which change their design for the first time, are more practical because they have been reduced “in size so that they have the same height as those of Euro 50.

They are more colourful, because they include a wide range of intermediate tones, between green and yellow, to make them more attractive and incorporate two new security elements: a hologram with satellite and an emerald green number that changes to dark blue when the ticket is tour.
