Second Series of Euro Banknotes ES2

 

LaMontagne is reporting that the European Central Bank will soon reveal the second generation euro banknotes. According to the same website the design will remain the same but the notes will have more intense colouring. The first note to be printed will be the €5 - printing will start in 2012 and 1.25 billion €5 notes will be printed by the Bank of France Chamalières (Puy de Dome). These notes will appear in circulation in 2013, the €10 will follow in 2014 and €20 in 2015.


15 September 2012 - According to the news website economymagazine.bg the European Central Bank this November will present the new series of euro banknotes and they should appear in circulation in May 2013. The new banknotes will have updated and new security features.


Bloomberg.com also confirms the above and adds that the first banknotes to be put in circulation will be those of €5. It also says that "The ECB is using an image from Greek mythology to improve security on new euro banknotes. Europa, the Phoenician princess abducted by Zeus who gave the continent its name, will replace architectural images as the watermark on the new notes. Putting a face rather than a structure on the watermark may make it harder for forgers to produce fakes.

 

The new notes will retain these symbols and be very similar to those in circulation other than the changed watermark, the people said. The colors of the notes will be slightly different and Europa will also show as a hologram on the silver marking on the right-hand side of each bill, one of the people said. The map of Europe on the notes will reflect the enlarged European Union, according to information on the ECB’s website

 

31 October 2012- The Central Bank of Europe has revealed some information about the second series;

the second series banknotes will have the same colors and denominations as the first

the name of the euro will also be in Cyrillic - EBPO

a revised map of Europe including Malta and Cyprus

the initials of the European Central Bank will now be in 9 languages instead of the current 5

the ECB will launch a website dedicate to the second series as part of the information campaign

 

05 November 2012 - euobserver.eu just reported that the European Central Bank is Thursday to present a plan for replacing current euro notes with safer ones from 2013, Hessischer Rundfunk reported Sunday. The second generation euro notes will still have values from five to €500, but motifs will change and improved security features will make forgery more difficult.
