The new 10 euro note, scheduled for release on Tuesday, September 23, will feature the portrait of Europa, inspired by Greek mythology, in the hologram and the watermark. It will also include some enhanced security features.
As in the first series of banknotes, the authenticity of the new 10 euro note will be verified easily by touch and sight, through the method of three tests “feel, look and tilt,” according to the European Central Bank (ECB).
The banknotes will also feature a number printed in dark green color, which changes from dark green to deep blue when the banknote is tilted. Thanks to the new protective coating of the 5 and 10 euro notes of the Europa series, the notes are now more resistant to wear.
