Got my first Legaede €50 today. Didn’t expect to see them for quite a while.

20 euro T notes with plate code T008 have been sighted recently in circulation. It is interesting to see that The Central Bank of Ireland is still releasing Irish euro notes from old stock. We should probably expect 20 euro notes with T007 and T009 plate codes to appear some time also. The updated table of Irish Europa Series notes is attached.

Just got a Legarde tenner. Change having paid for a pint. 😁 Unusually has an A prefix. I assumed A would be fully used at this stage. W obviously being the print works.

Came from the bottom of a pallet of notes maybe.

I thought A was used up with Draghi. I don’t think they start the numbering again with a change of signature. There seems to be a batch of €20 Legarde notes about with RP as the prefix.

I always think some sort of replacement system when something like this appears - except we know there are no replacements any more!

I just can’t seem to work out the numbering. There must be some system.

Apart from the checksum obviously. I thought ranges were just allocated to print works but this tenner throws a spanner in the works for that.

The W prefix notes are printed by Giesecke & Devrient, Munich. All notes that I have seen to date for this printer (10 & 20 euro) start with the letters WA. The A really functions as part of the serial number and generates further options for the checksum.

The serial number of the 10 euro note that you posted, WA3109859389, meets the checksum requirements. To convert the W and A to numerical digits, refer to the table in the attached link. In the decimal system, W corresponds to 87, A corresponds to 65.

http s://en .wikipedia.org/wiki/ASCII

WA31098559389 converts to 87653109859389. The sum of these digits is 81 which is divisible by 9 and therefore meets the checksum requirements.

Just looking at the production figures for 2022 for euro banknotes. It’s a pity we are no longer printing banknotes as next year we are one of the countries commissioning €50 notes for the first time since the launch in 2002. The figures are here. Would have been nice to see T reg €50s!

Indeed! It would have added a bit of fun to the Irish Euro line up.
