SECURITY FEATURES ON EURO NOTES PRESENTED BY FINANCIAL SAFETY FOR CUSTOMERS CAMPAIGN

500 EURO

  1. Paper

Feel the banknote. It should be crisp and firm.

  1. Raised print

Run your finger across the front of the banknote. The ink is thicker in some parts.

  1. Watermark

Look at the banknote against the light. A faint image and the value become visible. If, however, you put the banknote on a dark surface, the watermark becomes darker.

  1.  Security thread

Look at the banknote against the light. The security thread – a dark line running through the banknote – becomes visible. The word “EURO” and the value can be seen in tiny letters in the thread.

  1.  See-through number

Look at the banknote against the light. The marks printed in the top-left corner on the front and the top-right corner on the back of the banknote combine perfectly to form the value.

  1. Hologram

When you tilt the banknote, the hologram shows the value of the note and a window or doorway.

  1. Color-changing number

Tilt the banknote. On the back, the number changes color from purple to olive green or brown.

  1.  Microprint

On some areas of the banknote you can see tiny writing. This microprint appears as a thin line to the naked eye, but can be read with a magnifying glass. Despite its small size, the print is sharp, not blurred.

  1.  UV properties

Under ultraviolet light, the paper itself does not glow. Red, blue and green-colored fibers embedded in the paper appear, the flag of the European Union looks green and the stars turn orange. The signature of the ECB’s President turns green. The large stars and small circles in the center glow orange. On the back, the map, bridge and value appear in yellow.

Look at the banknote against the light. The security thread appears as a dark line. The € symbol and the value of the banknote can be seen in tiny white lettering in that stripe.

Tilt the banknote. The hologram – the silvery stripe on the right of the note – reveals a portrait of Europa (a figure from Greek mythology) as well as the € symbol, the main image and the value of the banknote.

Tilt the banknote. The shiny number in the bottom left corner displays an effect of the light that moves up and down. The number also changes color from emerald green to deep blue.
