tabbs Posted February 12, 2006 Report Share Posted February 12, 2006 Exactly ten years ago the designs of the euro notes were picked: In 1996 the European Union launched a design competition for the new money. If you are interested in the contributions that did not win, have a look at this file: http://www.ecb.int/bc/pdf/banknotes/euro_catalogue.pdf (PDF, about 28 MB!) That is the catalog which accompanied the Euro Banknote Design Exhibition. In 2003 the European Central Bank published the selected and rejected designs in a show that then toured Europe. The catalog of the exhibition was made available on CD and as a printed book. Now you can download the English language version from the ECB website ... if you have a relatively fast Internet connection. Christian Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
