The various uniform currency

Unlike former colourful European banknotes new currency looks faintly. But its design as a result of long and painful coordination suits all. Banknotes will be let out seven types - face value in 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 and 500 euros. Their design corresponds to seven epoch in the history of the European culture - classical, Roman, Gothic, the Renaissance, baroque and rococo, glass and metal and, at last, modern culture. Thus at registration necessarily there are three architectural elements - windows, arches and bridges. Windows and arches are located on the same party of denominations, as the European Union flag, and as the official rhetoric says, symbolise spirit of an openness and cooperation in Europe . Also on each banknote there is a currency name Latin and Greek letters, an abbreviation of the European Central Bank at five linguistic variants (EVERYTHING, ESV, EZB, EKT, EKR) and the signature of its president.
With coins all is more difficult. They will be eight face values (1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 eurocents and 1 and 2 euros), but the design of coins will differ depending on the country where they are minted. So to fans to travel it is necessary to drag with itself tables for their recognition.
it is interesting that banknotes similar in appearance actually will have too national features. It is caused by that they will be printed in 11 printing houses of the EU countries which intend to use a special paper from ten different manufacturers. Will differ not only the press and a paper, but also the paints used for manufacturing of banknotes that creates serious complexities on revealing of fakes.
