The new EUR10 banknote will be unveiled on 13 January 2014 and start circulating later in the year.
To draw attention to its security features, the European Central Bank is today launching an online competition for European Union residents over 18 years old.
Players have to uncover four of these features and also guess the number of euro banknotes in circulation in the euro area on 31 December 2013.
The competition opens at 10 a.m. today and closes at 11.59 p.m. CET on 12 January 2014.
Christine Graeff, Director General Communications & Language Services at the ECB, says: "The euro is the most visible and internationally known symbol of a united Europe. 334 million people use euro banknotes every day. This game is a fun way to remind all of us to take a closer look at them".
