EU unveils new more durable €10 note

The new €10 banknote has been unveiled by the European Central Bank.

It will come into circulation across the Eurozone on September 23, and it will be more durable and more resistant to counterfeiting.

It also means the 2.0 versions won't need to be replaced as often as the older version.

'Europa' - a figure from Greek mythology,which is responsible for the continent’s name - graces the revamped note in the hologram and watermark.

Up to 334 million people in 18 countries now use the euro currency.
