Images of banknotes

 

Euro banknotes exist in seven different denominations – 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 and 500 euro – and share the same designs across all countries in the euro area. These designs are inspired by the theme ‘ages and styles of Europe’ and depict the architectural styles from seven periods of Europe’s cultural history through typical elements such as windows, gateways (on the front) and bridges (on the back), symbolising the European spirit of openness and co-operation.

Designs also include the name of the currency in both Latin (EURO) and Greek (ΕΥΡΩ) alphabets, the name of the European Central Bank (ECB) in the EU languages which were official when the euro was first launched, and the EU flag. The banknotes also bear the signature of the ECB President.
