currency

The Central Bank is launching a new €10 banknote today.

The new note is also being introduced across the rest of the eurozone and will circulate alongside the existing €10 note.

It's the second note in the new Europa series, after the new €5 note which was launched in May of last year.

The new note is the same size as the old €10 note, and looks similar, but has a number of new features designed to improve security and durability.

These include a portrait hologram of the Greek goddess Europa, a portrait watermark of Europa, and a series of raised lines along the note's sides.

A total of 2.1 billion €10 banknotes were circulating in the euro zone at the end of August.
