New 10 euro note as from 23 September 2014


A new 10 euro note will be introduced on the market on 23 September 2014. 
The new note should be easier to recognise and more difficult to counterfeit.

ECB describes:
“In addition to the portrait of Europa in the hologram and the watermark, the notes include an emerald number, which changes colour from emerald green to deep blue when tilted. The €5 and €10 banknotes of the Europa series are more durable as they have a protective coating.”

Here you can download ECB’s guide of the new note:
