Microlettering
Microlettering

At several places of the banknote motif, there is microlettering, which looks pin sharp even under a magnifying glass.

Emerald number
Emerald number

The emerald number is a shiny number on the front of the banknote. It displays an effect of light that moves up and down. The number also changes colour from emerald green to deep blue.

Portrait-Watermark
Portrait-Watermark

In the watermark you can see a faint image, which shows a portrait of the mythological figure Europa. This is why it is called "portrait watermark", in order to distinguish it from the watermark of the first euro banknote series. In the watermark you can also see the value of the banknote (10) and a gateway. The portrait is the most striking of the watermark images and also appears in the hologram.
