European Monetary Union to issue new notes in 2013

According to an article on EUObserver dated 5 November 2012, "The European Central Bank is Thursday to present a plan for replacing current euro notes with safer ones from [May] 2013, Hessischer Rundfunk reported Sunday. The second generation euro notes will still have values from five to €500, but motifs will change and improved security features will make forgery more difficult."
