paper security expert and CEO of The Naples Bank Note Company (NBNC) said,
“As an American company I am proud to offer such a unique, one-of-a-kind
commemorative banknotable. Collectors, as well as persons of European Heritage,
will want this unique and outstanding remembrance of European Unity. It
is the hope that European bankers, financial institutions and government
officials will also take advantage of the Million Euro as valuable memorabilia.”
The One Million
Euro was created to represent a major milestone in Europe’s long and colorful
past. Designed by world-famous and award-winning banknote artist Christopher
McCauley, the One Million Euro is a marriage of the individual national
flags and a symbol of unity, while printed on specially made banknote security
paper. “If you didn’t know a million Euro banknote existed, you would think
our commemorative was real,” said Bednar.
“There’s no mistaking the One Million Euro as real. The European Central
Bank doesn’t issue notes above 500. How amazing to be able to own a limited
edition Euro capturing the historical significance of a once in a lifetime
event that looks and feels just like real currency.”
Each One Million
Euro is consecutively numbered and printing was limited to 150 thousand.
