El nuevo billete de 20€ entra en circulación hoy

2015-11-25


  • El nuevo billete de 20€ comienza a circular hoy
  • El nuevo billete es más difícil de falsificar
  • El Eurosistema ha facilitado materiales para preparar la adaptación de las máquinas de tratamiento de billetes al nuevo billete de 20€

El nuevo billete de 20€, el tercero de la serie Europa, entra en circulación hoy. Presenta un aspecto actualizado y colores más vivos, e incluye un nuevo elemento de seguridad: una ventana con retrato en la banda holográfica que se vuelve transparente al mirarla al trasluz. La ventana muestra un retrato de Europa, personaje de la mitología griega, que puede verse en ambos lados del billete. El retrato también aparece en la marca de agua, junto a un número verde esmeralda que produce un reflejo metálico que se desplaza verticalmente al inclinar el billete, igual que en los billetes de 5€ y 10€ de la serie Europa.

El vídeo titulado «Descubre el nuevo billete de 20€», disponible en 23 lenguas de la Unión Europea, ofrece más información sobre el nuevo billete y sobre cómo comprobar su autenticidad. Además de este vídeo, en el sitio www.nuevos-billetes-en-euros.eu se presentan otros vídeos sobre el efectivo en euros y materiales didácticos alternativos sobre los billetes, como «Euro Cash Academy».

Los billetes de 20€ de la primera serie seguirán siendo de curso legal y continuarán circulando en paralelo con los nuevos billetes antes de ser retirados progresivamente de la circulación.

El Eurosistema ha prestado asistencia y animado a las asociaciones industriales, a los fabricantes de maquinaria de tratamiento de billetes y a otros colaboradores europeos a preparar y adaptar sus dispositivos con antelación suficiente para que acepten el nuevo billete. En torno al 15 % de los minoristas en la zona del euro utiliza dispositivos autenticadores.

Hoy también comienza el concurso en línea «Euro Run» para niños de entre 9 y 12 años residentes en la zona del euro. Los participantes en el concurso recorrerán un lugar imaginario, respondiendo a preguntas sencillas sobre los billetes y monedas en euros y evitando obstáculos y trampas. Sumarán puntos conforme avancen en sus siete niveles. Los 100 mejores jugadores recibirán un nuevo billete de 20€ en un marco especial grabado. El concurso concluirá el 25 de febrero de 2016.
