                                                   I have tried this with 20  Euro note & it does have RFID tag! (not any more..)
                    rfid burn

                                              It seems the new Euros have a little something extra besides the pretty
                                             colours. They're embedded with Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)
                                             chips that can set off those monitoring devices at                                                                                          
                                             store exits designed to alert personnel that you're walking out with tagged
                                             merchandise. It is claimed that you can "fry" the RFID tag by putting
                                             your money in the microwave  If you don't  want your money tracked, don't
                                             think you'll avoid it by leaving the country.
                                             True or not?

                                             Re: New UK £20 note. This surprisingly does not appear to have an RFID chip,
                                             maybe there will be one  fitted in later issues.....

I am  told by a friend who is a property dealer & much more, that each country has issued its own Euro.
If Greece & Spain + Ireland default ( maybe Portugal as well)  the notes issued by those countries will no longer have any value  or be accepted by banks as legal tender to protect the rest of the countries. Germany and Holland have kept the old money in vaults vacuum sealed  ready to change back into their own currencies overnight should this happen. They will only be
exchanged for Euro notes that do not belong to the defaulted country.
when you exchange money to get Euros the exchange places will give you Euros from the countries as stated to try to offload & protect themselves knowing that this situation could occur in the near future, so it might be a good idea to check the Euros you are given in exchange for other currencies. YVTM  are the ones suggested you do not get stuck with. Better to be safe than sorry, or ripped off. Even should this information not be completely correct , Remember it is your money!


              The Euro banknotes carry the following signature letters to indicate the issuing national central bank:

Code letter
National central bank of ... Code letter
* New banknotes issued by the Banque centrale du Luxembourg currently bear the code letters of the National Centralbanks in the countries where the banknotes for Luxembourg are produced.
Belgium Z
Greece Y
Germany X
Spain V
France U
Ireland T
Italy S
Luxembourg *
Netherlands P
Austria N
Portugal M
Finland L
Slovenia H
Slovakia E
Cyprus G
