The recognizable features of the new 100 and 200 euro banknotes with the naked eye
The banknotes of the above mentioned cuts belonging to the new Europa series are characterized by a silver lateral strip containing the following elements:
- a satellite hologram that shows small € symbols that move around the number and become clearer under direct light;
- the portrait of Europe;
- the architectural motif;
- a great symbol of the €.
In addition, the new € 100 and € 200 banknotes also have a number indicating the cut of the enhanced emerald banknote which shows the symbol of the European currency inside.
Both new banknotes are smaller than the previous ones. In particular, the new 100 and 200 € banknotes measure as high as a € 50 banknote because they have been designed with an eye on the work of the bill counter so that they can more easily manage money. Their length, however, has remained unchanged with the principle that the longer the note, the higher its value.

The new euro banknotes of the Europa series also contain mechanically readable security features, in addition to those that can be seen with the naked eye.
