Czech Republic new 100-korun note (B127a) confirmed


According to a press release dated 5 September 2018, the Czech National Bank has introduced new 100- and 200-korun notes like the preceding issues, but they have enhanced anti-counterfeiting protection: addition of Omron rings; a 3-mm wide, puce-to-green windowed security thread with different demetalized text; electrotype element added to watermark; plus green and orange fluorescent ink.

According to contributor Kevin Klauss in Prague, the new notes are not widely released for circulation as there are some problems with automats recognizing these notes. While you can get 100-korun notes at the central bank, the tellers are instructed to give one piece per customer per day. The 200-korun note is not currently available at the National Bank in Prague.
