The Central Bank of Ireland says the new notes will be the same height as the current €50 and have 'updated security.' This, apparently, means you can check to see if it's real by looking for small € signs when you turn it on its side.
Current €100 and €200 notes will remain in circulation for a while as they're gradually fazed out for the new, niftier models that will apparently fit in your wallet better than the previous ones.
The new €100 and €200 banknotes, the last notes in the Europa series, start circulating today. The banknotes use new and innovative security features and are easy to check using the “feel, look and tilt” method. #NewBanknotes @ecb https://t.co/kmYaubnTF2 pic.twitter.com/f3NBEW51gH

What’s new? They are smaller and they have new security features such as the “satellite hologram” – when you tilt the banknote you see tiny € symbols moving around the number! Get to know their new design and features in 3D here https://t.co/4vQJK7BH2p pic.twitter.com/qndTCH1G9z

Unless you're a baller/pimp. Then you probably use a money clip or throw cash at people when your pockets are too full.
