ECB approval for Note Validator Range 

We have once again received independent approval from the European Central Bank (ECB) for our note validator (NV) range. The ECB authenticate validators that successfully recognise the difference between genuine and counterfeit Euro banknotes. Our NV9 USB+, NV10 USB+, NV200, NV200 Spectral and the new NV9 Spectral all received a 100% pass rate during testing at De Nederlandsche Bank in Amsterdam in July.  

 
New €100 and €200 banknotes 
The new €100 and €200 banknotes will enter circulation on 28 May 2019. After the €5, €10, €20 and €50, the €100 and €200 banknotes are the last two denominations of the Europa series, and therefore mark its completion. The new €100 and €200 banknotes incorporate new and innovative security features: a satellite hologram and an enhanced emerald number. 
The new banknotes will be included in all of our datasets and will be available for downloading free of charge from the website by the end of the calendar year.  
 
New £50 polymer 

In October The Treasury announced that the £50 note will stay part of UK currency with a new polymer design. The new £50 note will feature a prominent British scientist, the Bank of England has announced, with the public being asked for nominations. The Treasury hasn't yet announced what the timeline will be for introducing the new £50 note.  

Reminder that the new £20, printed on polymer, will be issued in 2020 and will include the artist JMW Turner.
