This year’s exhibition showcases the iconic notes and coins of Ireland since independence. Visitors can learn about the Central Bank and win prizes by spinning the wheel, lifting an exact replica of a gold-bar to guess its weight or taking a selfie with €500,000 in shredded banknotes. The exhibition will explain how euro coins are minted and describe the process of developing a euro banknote. The exhibition is designed to show how the euro in your pocket supports commerce.

Experts will be on hand to answer questions about the exhibition and we will have Media Relations Officers on site on Tuesday and Wednesday to discuss the exhibition and the new Central Bank Visitor Centre and Archives, which opened to the public last month.
