The new €50 banknote started circulating on 4 April 2017. The note is part of new Europa Series. Around 45% of all banknotes are fifty euro notes, with more than 9 billion in circulation. The new euro banknotes feature the “ages and styles” design of the first series and use the same predominant colors, but have been slightly modified to accommodate the enhanced security features.


Security features:




+ Feel the new 50 euro note


1.The banknote paper consists of pure cotton fibre, which feels crisp and firm (not limp or waxy).


2.Raised print:
Feel the banknote. On the obverse of the note, there is a series of short raised lines on the left and right edges. To feel the raised print, run your finger over it or scratch it gently with your fingernail. The lines make it easy to identify the banknote, for visually handicapped people. The main image, the lettering and the large value numeral also feel thicker.

+ Look at the banknote against the light. The portrait window and watermark as well as the security thread become visible.



1.Portrait window
Look at the banknote against the light – the window near the top of the hologram becomes transparent and reveals a portrait of Europa on both sides of the note. When the banknote is tilted, the window also shows rainbow-coloured lines around the value numeral. On the back of the banknote, rainbow-coloured value numerals appear in the window.

2.Portrait watermark
The watermark is produced by varying the thickness of the paper. A faint image becomes visible and shows a portrait of Europa (a figure from Greek mythology), the value of the banknote and a window appears when you hold the banknote against the light. If you put the banknote on a dark surface the light areas become darker. This effect is very easy to see in the value watermark.

3.Security thread
The security thread is embedded in the new 50 euro note paper. Look at the banknote against the light. The security thread appears as a dark line. The euro symbol and the value of the banknote can be seen in tiny white lettering in that stripe.

2.Standard UV light

The paper itself does not glow, i.e. it does not emit light and is dark. Small fibers embedded in the paper appear. Each fiber shows three different colors. The stars in the EU flag, the small circles as well as the large stars glow yellow. Several other areas also glow yellow. On the back, a quarter of a circle in the center of the banknote as well as several other areas glow green. The horizontal serial number and a stripe appear in red.
