What do euro banknotes look like?

Banknote characteristics


There are currently two series of euro banknotes in circulation (the first series and the second series, or Europa series). In addition, work is under way on the design of a new, more up-to-date series, with which Europeans citizens of all ages and backgrounds can identify themselves, and which will also include improved security features ensuring the public’s confidence in our currency.

The banknotes of each series follow the same pattern in their design.
