CI Tech is ready for the new 50 EUR banknote

Today the European Central Bank (ECB) unveiled the new 50 Euro banknote in Frankfurt on the Main, Germany. The new banknote will enter into circulation on 4th April 2017.

The new €50 banknote includes a portrait window – a new and innovative feature first used on the Europa series €20. When the banknote is held up to the light, a transparent window near the top of the hologram reveals a portrait of Europa, a figure from Greek mythology, which is visible on both sides of the note. The same portrait also appears in the watermark. The front of the banknote features an “emerald number”, a shiny number that, when tilted, changes colour from emerald green to deep blue and displays an effect of the light that moves up and down. These security features make it easy to check the new €50 for authenticity, using the “feel, look and tilt” method.

All the new security features can be viewed here.
