European Monetary Union new 20-euro note to be issued 25.11.2015

On 24 February 2015, Mario Draghi, president of the European Central Bank, unveiled the new 20-euro banknote in Frankfurt. The new note will be introduced 25 November 2015.

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, visible on both sides of the note. The new €20 banknote, like the new €5 and €10 notes, also includes an “emerald number” and a portrait of Europa in the watermark.
