Pont Neuf

Picture of Gothic stone bridge and a map of Europe. A possible model for the picture on the banknote 50 euro could become a bridge in Toulouse (Pont Neuf, 1632). Feature of this Renaissance bridge is that it is largely built of bricks. Then it was rather unusual, but probably just the builders did not have enough stones. Therefore, only the individual reinforcing struts are made of natural stone.

On left side are the map of Europe and 12 stars of EU.

Denomination in numeral at bottom.

Comments:

The design of banknotes was designed by an artist of the National Bank of Austria, Robert Kalina and a graphic designer from Germany Reinhold Gershtetter.

All euro banknotes have the signature of the current President of the ECB. Director appointed for a term of eight years.

The following islands and overseas territories are shown on the back of euro banknotes: the Azores, the Canary Islands, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Madeira, Martinique and Reunion.

When probing the bills left to right should be letters and numbers, indicating the dignity of the monetary unit.

The note also carries the initials of the European Central Bank in nine linguistic variants, covering all official languages of the EU in the beginning of 2013 (the time of the banknote introduction), and now 23 out of 24 official languages of the EU28, in the following order (see above for details on the initials used already in the 2002 series): BCE, ECB, ЕЦБ (Bulgarian: Европейска централна банка), EZB, EKP, ΕΚΤ, EKB (Hungarian: Európai Központi Bank), BĊE (Maltese: Bank Ċentrali Ewropew), EBC (Polish: Europejski Bank Centralny). Not covered by the initials is Croatian, which became an official language in July 2013 (the ECB name in Croatian is Europska središnja banka, abbreviated ESB).
