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.
Issuance of the standard quality (mint condition) €10 collector coin “On the water” as well as the mint condition 20 euro collector coin “Grimm's fairy tales: Mother Hulda“, “50 years Show with the Mouse” and “100th birthday Sophie Scholl” have been postponed indefinitely due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
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.
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.
