50 Euro Bill
In and out of the 50 Euro bill
The 50 euro bill is the highest value euro banknote and has been in circulation since 2002. The bill is a green color and bears a portrait of Humboldt on the obverse and a view of the Brandenburg Gate on the reverse. The bill is not a very commonly used note, but it does have its fair share of fans. Some people like the fact that it’s a higher value than the 20 or 10, while others appreciate the design. But there are also a lot of people who don’t like the 50 euro bill for one reason or another. In this blog post, we will explore both sides of the debate and try to make a case for and against using this bill.
