    What are the security features of Euro banknotes?

Euro banknotes contain a lot of security features which make a comprehensive checking possible.

The greatest strength of the new Euro banknotes lies in the combination of security features, some of which have already proved effective in many national banknotes.
The Euro banknotes are printed on pure cotton paper, which gives them a unique feel. By using a special printing technology some sections on the front of the banknotes can be identified by touch.
