The European Central Bank (ECB) has announced that the €20, the next banknote from the Europa series of banknotes, will be unveiled on 24 February 2015.
The new €20 is the third banknote to be released from the second series of Euro banknote, following the €5 and €10 issued in May 2013 and September 2014 respectively. The banknote’s circulation issuance date is expected to be revealed during the unveiling.
The Central Bank advises that they are supporting banknote equipment manufacturers, suppliers and owners of banknote authentication devices by making the new banknotes available to them well in advance of their issuance to ensure sufficient time for testing and modifications where necessary.
“The ECB and the national central banks of the euro area look forward to working closely, once again, with the manufacturers, suppliers, operators and owners of banknote equipment. After all, it is they who prepare the machines and devices to accept this new banknote ahead of its issuance” Yves Mersch, Executive Board member of the European Central Bank.
