Best images of Euro coins/banknotes yet

The European Central Bank's official website has the best images of the
forthcoming Euro coins and banknotes that I have seen yet.  These
include the recently released *final* designs of the banknotes with
details of the security features.  ALL of the notes include hologram
foils, intaglio printing, watermarks, interesting 'front-to-back'
resgistry items (the numbers on the upper left of the obverse) and
iridescent and color-sifting inks on the reverses.  The paper is similar
to that used in USA notes, but using 100% cotton.

Also available in languages other than English.

See them at:

EXCELLENT website!!!
