2 % of the notes entered from Luxembourg in January 2003 are Finnish. :) I think most of them are 100 € notes printed by Finnish Setec for Luxembourg.
In another thread it was mentioned that these notes are entered especially from Belgium and the Netherlands too. So maybe 100 € note with serial starting with L1 (printing year 2002) can be considered as a Luxemburgian. Anyway these are pooling system banknotes.

Yeah!
I noticed this too.
Lately I get a lot of Finnish 100euro notes!
About 20% of my 100euro notes.
Not that I get that many of them, but it's really striking how much Finnish L1 notes are between them!

The first 100€ I ever held in my hands (this summer) had a L1 serial ...
[I thought it was genuine Finnish ... but it could also have been a pooling note]

Those L1 notes are usually printed by D001
So they're really Finnish :D

It is a "pooling note", because Luxembourg ordered their notes in the pre-2002 phase in the Netherlands (except the EUR-10 notes they got from Bundesruckerei). But in 2002, they let Setec print their 100€ notes in the pooling system.

Curious - why have the Spanish notes been pooled all over Europe? Did they really overestimate their needs of €20s and €50s?

That's the very nature of the decentralized pooling systems. Only a few of the 12 NCB's are responsible for a given denomination, give printing orders to printers of their choice and distribute the notes to those NCB's across EuroLand which are in need of this denomination.

Spain is responsible in 2002 and 2003 for EUR20 notes, together with France, Finland and Italy in 2002 and Germany, France, The Netherlands and Potugal in 2003. Spain is also resonsible for EUR50 notes, together with Belgium and The Netherlands in 2002 and Belgium, Italy and The Netherlands in 2003.

So, it looks as if those many spanisch EUR20 notes appearing in Belgium were printed in 2002. They might even be printed earlier, for the initial production, and have been kept in the reserve, but who knows?

There has been a surge of new V 20s in our teller drawers from customer deposits. Ther has also been a surge of Z 50s but they aren't from the pooling system, in fact theres only a few that are pooling while the crisp, consecutive ones are all T001. :?

This is from an old thread:
Olivier wrote:I think at the beginning, the banks used their "national" funds. After the summer, there will be millions of notes in the south of Europe (Europeans usually go to the south for the vacations). A logisitic program has already been decided by the european central bank to bring back some bills to the north.

The BIG MIX is coming!


Can this also be a reason, why there are so many Spanish pooling notes ?
