El Eurosistema presentará el nuevo billete de 20€ y prestará apoyo a los fabricantes y proveedores de máquinas de tratamiento de billetes


  • El Eurosistema presentará el nuevo billete de 20€ de la serie Europa el 24 de febrero de 2015. El nuevo billete incluirá elementos de seguridad mejorados.
  • Los fabricantes y proveedores de máquinas de tratamiento de billetes seguirán recibiendo apoyo del Eurosistema para adaptar sus máquinas y dispositivos autenticadores.

El nuevo billete de 20€ es la tercera denominación de la serie Europa que se introduce, tras los billetes de 5€ y 10€. El BCE y los bancos centrales nacionales de la zona del euro, que conjuntamente forman el Eurosistema, presentarán el billete y anunciarán la fecha exacta de emisión el 24 de febrero de 2015. La introducción de la serie Europa responde a la necesidad de seguir mejorando la integridad de los billetes en euros e ir por delante de los falsificadores.

El Eurosistema está adoptando varias medidas para apoyar a los fabricantes de máquinas de tratamiento de billetes, a los proveedores y a los propietarios de máquinas y dispositivos autenticadores:

  • Está poniendo el nuevo billete a su disposición en los bancos centrales nacionales de la zona del euro con antelación suficiente a su emisión para que puedan realizar pruebas y adaptar sus máquinas y dispositivos. Tras la presentación del nuevo billete de 20€, podrán realizar pruebas fuera de los bancos centrales.
  • Está organizando una serie de eventos y actividades para preparar la emisión del nuevo billete de 20€. El primero de estos eventos es un seminario del Eurosistema para organizaciones interesadas que se celebrará en la Banca d'Italia en Roma el 6 de febrero de 2015.
  • Está facilitando distintos materiales informativos y herramientas para ayudarles a prepararse para la introducción del nuevo billete.

«El BCE y los bancos centrales nacionales de la zona del euro desean cooperar estrechamente, una vez más, con los fabricantes, proveedores, operadores y propietarios de maquinaria de tratamiento de billetes. Son ellos los que preparan las máquinas y dispositivos para que acepten este nuevo billete con antelación a su emisión», declaró Yves Mersch, miembro del Comité Ejecutivo del Banco Central Europeo.
