Confidence in a currency is rooted in cash. In Germany, it is the Bundesbank’s task to provide an adequate supply of high-quality euro banknotes and coins at all times. The Bundesbank provides retailers and banks with cash, withdraws counterfeit money from circulation and replaces damaged coins and banknotes.
The European Central Bank and the national central banks of the Eurosystem began rolling out a second series of euro banknotes in May 2013. The new €100 and €200 banknotes will start circulating on 28 May 2019.
2019 – 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall
As of 10 October 2019, the German Federal government will issue a german €2 commemorative collector’s coin marking the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. The mint condition coins can be purchased at all Bundesbank branches as they become available.
The European Central Bank and the national central banks of the euro area are working together to ensure that the euro banknotes in circulation are of the best possible quality. Your feedback is essential to help us achieve this goal.
