The Eurosystem introduced the new €5 banknote in 2013 and the new €10 note the next year. Three-quarters of all respondents like the two new banknotes, which represents an increase in appreciation from the old €5 and €10 notes. The two new banknotes now receive the same level of appreciation as the series as a whole (see Chart). When asked which of the notes from the whole series they like best, the largest group chooses the new €10 note.
The respondents feel the new series makes payments safer. In their opinion, the new banknote series is more difficult to counterfeit and easier to check than the old series. This increases their confidence in the authenticity of the banknotes.
