dots on euro bills

Post by jovada » Fri Nov 13, 2009 8:29 pm

For those who attended the S-EBTM in Vienna and visited the national bank: someone made a remark about the security features of the bills that us users aren't supposed to know. One thing I remember where the little circles or dots... Does anyone know more about these dots, or the other "secret" features of our euro bills?

Great! Thanks! It's still a partial mystery though, but now I know where to start the next part of my research :)

I once had to photocopy some Euro-Bills and the man in charge of the shop said it was impossible and that it would block his machines. After a few minutes of discussions, he accepted to try photocopying the bills, and,... Indeed, it did block his super-machines ! :mrgreen:

After reading the information on wiki, I know that it is because of the EUR-constellation !

thank you for the information.
