    Hi,

    The ECB is launching new 10 euro banknotes. Why? I guess they're bored and want to play around with the design. Euro notes are so simplist... even this new one. Although I like it a bit more.

    Here's a press kit with details:

    Short news and video with a guy who has a funny accent:

    Apparently the 5 and 10 euro notes aren't treated with "enough kindness". So it seems they wanted to create a more resistant note. Also: against counterfeiting they developed "new features".

    I bet these notes will have that strong "fresh printed" smell :lol:
    I wonder how many they will make. The old ones will keep circulating for a while...

    Here's a stack of old notes:

    According to Reuters (the source) - a pack like that contains 10,000 EUR-worth of 10's :eek:
