New 10 euro presented on 13 January 2014 (update)

The European Central Bank had already announced that the new 10 euro note would be issued in 2014. Now they've given a new date to look forward to: 13 January 2014. On that day the design of the new banknote will be unveiled.

The ECB announced this happy news today at a seminar launching a Eurosystem Partnership Programme which has been set up for banknote equipment manufacturers and suppliers as well as clients and users.

This will be the second issue in the new Europa series. The new note will be issued later next year. When exactly? The new 5 euro note was presented on 10 January 2013 so if they keep more or less the same presentation and issue dates, you would expect the new 10 euro around May 2014. At this site however the ECB says it will "distribute leaflets about the new banknotes to points of sale across the euro area at the end of June 2014, ensuring cash handlers have ample opportunity to prepare for their circulation." So this probably means the new 10 euro will be available in the second half of 2014, even "after the summer".
