Czech Republic: updated 100- and 200-korun issued

The Czech National Bank has issued two updated versions of their 100- and 200-korun banknotes. For the most part the design remains the same but there have been some changes in the security features. The new notes circulate side-by-side with the existing ones. The versions of the 100-korun note that were put into circulation in 1995 and 1997 and the versions of the 200-korun note that were issued in 1996 and 1998 will remain legal tender and will be gradually replaced by the new version depending on their degree of wear.

Some of the updates include: 

  • omron rings
  • a 3 mm wide puce-to-green windowed security thread with different demetalized text
  • an electrotype element added to watermark
  • green and orange fluorescent ink
