The new note includes an innovative security feature in the form of a “portrait window” set in the hologram. When the banknote is held against the light, the window becomes transparent and reveals a portrait of the mythological figure Europa, visible on both sides of the note. The new €20 banknote, like the new €5 and €10 notes, also includes an “emerald number” and a portrait of Europa in the watermark.

To help banknote equipment manufacturers and other parties to prepare for the introduction of the new €20 banknotes ahead of the launch, the ECB and the national central banks of the Eurosystem have provided information and made the new notes available in advance for testing and adaptation.

Recall, Euro banknotes are now shared by 338 million people in 19 countries and have a combined face value of €1,000 billion.
