The European Central Bank has confirmed that it is preparing a new design for Euro notes.
The current design has been around for the last 11 years, and the ECB reckons it’s time for an update.
Although the overall colour scheme and motif of the new notes will remain the same, the ECB says that the security details of the new notes will be updated to the latest possible technology. Watermarks, holograms, embossed designs and the metallic strip will all be updated.
The new notes are expected to enter circulation as from May next year.
