She said that euro banknotes “are a tangible and tangible symbol that we stand together in Europe, especially in times of crisis, and there is still strong demand for them”.
The ECB said it would set up focus groups to gather comments from people across the continent on possible topics for future notes. Then, a “topical advisory group” with an expert from each eurozone country will submit a shortlist of proposed new topics to the ECB’s governing council.
The bank said it would solicit public input on the proposals, then hold a design competition for the new banknotes before soliciting public comment again. Its governing board will make the final decision and decide when new banknotes can be issued.
