ECB launches game to introduce the new 10 euro note

The new €10 banknote will be unveiled on 13 January 2014 and start circulating later in the year. To draw attention to its security features, the European Central Bank has launched an online competition for European Union residents over 18 years old. Players have to uncover four of these security features and also guess the number of euro banknotes in circulation in the euro area on 31 December 2013. The competition closes at 11.59 p.m. CET on 12 January 2014.

The interesting thing are the awards:

  • 20 high-scoring players will win €5 VIP banknotes from the Europa series personally signed by the President of the European Central Bank.
  • 80 runners-up will receive a commemorative €10 banknote from the first series.

A commemorative €10 banknote? I guess the presentation of the note in a frame or a folder will be the commemorative element because I doubt they will actually print a commemorative note.

Anyway, time to start playing!
