Souvenir Euro Bills

For the collectors among our visitors!

Content Euroschein Seriennummer Eng

The 0-Euro bill has been around for a few years now; you can buy it at quite a few tourist attractions across Europe as a souvenir.

They are printed in official printing plants for the Euro currency and show the following security features: watermark, copper strip, Simultouch, hologram, transparent register, printing plant security backdrop, fluorescent invisible ink and an individual serial number, unique to each bill.

There can be different motives to each issuing office. These identify through the first number following the year of issue. In practice this means, when the digit after the year changes, it is a new motif. Should the digit after the year stay the same it is the same motif but a new edition (changes within the general layout are allowed, e.g. a different shape of stars).

The serial number consists of 10 digits (4 letters and 8 numbers)

1st digitX
2nd digitE
3rd and 4th digitHA
5th to 10th digit013170
1st digitNZB code of the issuing country
2nd digitalways “E” (printing plant code of Oberthur)
3rd and 4th digitcode of issuing office or the customer
5th to 10th digitongoing enumeration. Creates each bill’s unique identifier in combination with year of issue and motif ID.

The motif on the backside of the bill has been changed in 2017 due to Brexit. Until then it showed Big Ben, now it depicts the Portuguese Torre de Belém. We also have been selling these bills since 2016 and want to provide you with an overview of the different issue bills.

All available bills can be bought on location or in our online shop.
