The New 100 and 200 Euro Banknotes

On the 28th May 2019 The European Central Bank will release a new €100 and €200 banknote design. This second series of 100 and 200 euro banknotes will use new innovative security features including a  satellite hologram at the top of the silver strip and an emerald green number in enhanced form. The new design aims to effectively protect against counterfeiting, making it is easier to check and process.

The length of the new €100 and €200 banknotes will remain the same however the height will change making them the same size as the 50-euro banknote.  The new size will become more user-friendly as they will fit better in the wallet and are more durable. The €500 banknote is to be phased out.
