The European Central Bank says it has received the first banknotes featuring Christine Lagarde’s signature.

According to the bank, the EUR 5 and EUR 10 notes will be the first with the new signature to enter into circulation, starting next week.

Those with the signature of former presidents will remain legal tender.

Most euro bills currently in circulation, carry Mario Draghi’s signature. His presidential term ended in October 2019.

Lagarde has been President of the European Central Bank since November 2019. She previously served as Chair and Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund.
