New €50 Banknote

In April the European Central Bank (ECB) released the new €50 bank note.  The new fifty has number of new features which makes it way more difficult to counterfeit.

The new €50 note is part of the Europa series which so has so far released new fivers, tenners, and twenties.

The new €100 and €200 bank notes will be released in late 2018.  I don't know why but the ECB will not release a new €500 bank note but the old bill will continue to be valid.

The €50 note is the most widely used Euro bank note.  I would have thought it to be the €20 note.  There are move than nine billion fifties in circulation which is about 46% of all bank notes.

Here's a video I found out on YouTube that talks about some of the new security features of the bank note.
