24.02.2015:  European Central Bank President Mario Draghi unveiled the “innovative” new banknote in Frankfurt.

The new note includes an innovative security feature in the form of a “portrait window” set in the hologram. When the banknote is held against the light, the window becomes transparent and reveals a portrait of the mythological figure Europa.

President Draghi said: “The portrait window is a real innovation in banknote technology. It is the outcome of the Eurosystem’s work to ensure that the euro notes continue to be resilient against counterfeiting. This will reinforce the trust that the 338 million citizens across the euro area place in their banknotes.”

The new 20 Euro note will enter into circulation on November 25, 2015.
