The new version of the 50-euro note was put into circulation yesterday in the 19 countries of the euro zone. What does the new ticket look like?

It had never been changed. After the cuts of 5, 10 and 20 euros, whose “Europe” series had been launched between 2013 and 2015, it is the turn of the 50 euros note to get a makeover. The new series was released yesterday, Tuesday April 4, 2017. The new version changes little appearance. On the other hand, it presents innovative security signs, protecting it a little more from falsification. The 50-euro note is the most used in Europe, with more than 9 billion denominations in circulation. It also represents 45% of the total volume of euro banknotes. In France, it only represents 20% of the banknotes in circulation and only comes in third position, behind the values ​​10 and 20 euros.
No replacement for first series tickets is to be expected. They will continue to be issued in parallel with the new series and will be gradually replaced, while supplies last. Your old tickets will therefore keep their full value without any deadline. The Europe series of 100 and 200 euro banknotes will be issued in early 2019.

New tickets to limit counterfeiting

The new cut of 50 euros remains substantially similar to the old. It keeps the same dimensions and the same orange color. On the other hand, it is endowed with innovative signs, aimed at increasing safety. Like the other banknotes of the Europe series, the 50 euro note is printed on a paper covered with a thin protective coating, making the touch a little different from the old versions. Similarly, the ticket has bands printed in relief on its left and right borders, intended for the visually impaired. In terms of graphics, the banknote also changes appearance. A watermark, only visible in transparency, as well as a window visible on the holographic strip let glimpse the portrait of Europe, a deity of Greek mythology. The “emerald number”, observable in the lower left corner and indicating the face value of the ticket, changes from blue to green by the effect of light moving up and down.

These new security features aim to limit the counterfeiting of euro banknotes. In the second half of 2016, 353 000 counterfeit notes had been withdrawn from circulation. Among them, 80.3% were denominations of 20 and 50 euros. The production and circulation of new series therefore aims to prevent the falsification of banknotes. Or at least to seriously complicate the task. Be aware that there are also several methods to locate a counterfeit ticket. Different techniques allow you to easily authenticate a ticket by touching it, tilting it or simply observing it.
