Since the Euro started to be used at the beginning of 2002, there has been lots of tries to create a forgery that could be distributed to the whole European Union. The truth is that the notes were created with excellent security measures that makes very difficult to do exact copies of them. Also, during this past year, new 5 euro note, that improves its security, started to be used. It is also planned to start using new 10 euro note in September 2014, as these are the most used among the Europeans.
