Mythical touch for new 10 euro notes
(01-13 19:07)

The European Central Bank revealed the new 10-euro banknotes including a portrait of the Greek mythological figure of Europa that will come into circulation from late September.
“The new 10-euro banknote of the Europa series will start circulating on September 23,'' the ECB said in a statement.
Like the new five-euro notes already launched in May, the new 10-euro notes have benefited from advances in banknote technology since the first series was introduced more than ten years ago.
Its security features have been enhanced, making them “even more resistant to counterfeiting,'' the ECB said.
The figure of Europa will feature in the hologram and watermark of the new notes.
The banknotes of the Europa series are being introduced gradually over several years.
The 10-euro note is the second new set of banknotes following the five-euro notes launched last May.
Higher denomination notes of 20-euro, 50-euro, 100-euro, 200-euro and 500-euro -- will follow subsequently.
The current euro banknotes issued in January 2002 will gradually be pulled from circulation. –AFP
